Action Principles 

Pick one to do this week:

  1. Take advantage of extracurricular activities. When you take part in school activities outside the classroom, you gain experience and build valuable connections.  ACTION: Do a little experiment by taking part in an activity that’s unexpected.
  2. Validate demand. A great idea is only as good as the demand for it. Use a system of research and testing to validate the demand first. ACTION: Survey your target market on your idea.
  3. Adopt a scientific mindset. As a scientist, you must be okay with failure. Through failed experiments, you can learn valuable lessons. ACTION: Choose a test to run and tell yourself “If it fails, that’s okay…what did I learn?
  4. Ask for feedback. Before investing in a new product or service, ask others for feedback on their experience. ACTION: Ask five people that used a service provider you’re considering and ask them how it worked out for them. Would they use it again?
