Lessons from The Intern: Be Simple. Be Sample

“Okay. It’s essential. That your generation doesn’t know that is criminal. The best reason to carry a handkerchief is to lend it.” -The Intern.

Re-watched this movie today. Great takeaways for professionals from the senior intern, Ben.

The thing about the intern is that its never about him.

It’s that you can Keep Moving, without making noise.

That the work you present, represents you for history.

That your work ethic matters just as much as the work itself.

That sharing credit with your peers doesnt make you less credible.

That doing small things doesnt make one small.

That simple things matter because simple isn’t necessarily easy.

Be simple. Be sample.
