Benjamin Altadonna – What I’ve Learned In 2010


2010 went by so fast, I thought I’d try to extract some meaning out of it all.

For me, here’s what I got out of it… (In no particular order)

  1. It only makes sense focusing on things I can control.
  2. Most people focus on the negative. Beware; it’s contagious.
  3. Taking time off and taking good care of myself isn’t a cost, it’s an investment with high dividends.
  4. Fight for what’s right.
  5. Nurture the relationships that matter.
  6. Manage people’s expectations makes them happier than attempting to solve all their problems.
  7. Competition and controversy is a form of flattery.
  8. Even though people can fix/improve their situation, many choose to justify it; it requires less integrity and work.
  9. Simple and conservative is best.
  10. There are bad people in this world. The faster you identify them and stay away from them the better. Go with your gut.

I hope you too “banked” some of 2010’s experiences and are smarter, wiser, healthier, and happier because of it.



Watching your back,
