With the school year starting up, I got to thinking about offering some avuncular advice to young people about how to make one’s way in the world.
Fortunately, I resisted the urge. Instead, I’ll merely advise: read Paul Graham.
For obvious reasons, I don’t offer young people much career advice. And even if I felt like it, I might not see much point in doing it myself because Graham has raised the quality bar so high over the last decade with his self-help essays.
