"I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm pretty sure what you heard is not what I meant." - A. Greenspan (apocryphal, surely

I suspect the above is true of me and my course, but I hope you heard some things that you'll find useful.

"To know that you know what you know and that you do not know what you do not know: that's the essence of true knowledge." - Confucius 

Remember Montaigne's question: "What do I know?"

And recall Soros's claim: "I'm only rich because I know when I'm wrong." 

Please practice asking -- in your own polite way -- the second magic question: How do you know that? Know what's bullshit, and don't bullshit -- too much -- yourself. 

Of course, the first magic question is always: What is the objective? Let your answer to that drive everything. 

I've put my materials below. Teach this stuff to your future colleagues -- they'll be really grateful. 

Practice the Principle of Charity. Hone your storytelling. Dance, don't fight. And above all don't be ordinary -- there's too much of that.
