6 Life Truths From a Harvard Professor
Harvard Business School’s Howard Stevenson shares his view of how the world works.
“My six truths are a sort of ‘rules of the road’ for my life journey; they have emerged over my 74 years, based on what has and hasn’t worked in my experience. Collectively, they tell a story, my view of how the world works.
I am accountable for my actions and my life. Life is full of uncertainties though, and I can’t know everything I need to know to make good decisions. I compensate by predicting but predictions are just guesses, so every action is a bet in a game where I don’t control the rules but I can decide if I want to play.
You may or may not agree with my six truths. That’s fine; you get to decide your own truths. But they underlie much of what you will read in my book, so let’s dissect them, truth by truth.”
