#15: Be authentic.


Authenticity is a virtue. The best style for you is what comes naturally. Being yourself attracts people, because in expressing yourself you reveal parts of yourself that others can connect with. Your work is easier, and you can persist for longer (perhaps indefinitely), since you face little internal resistance.

Who you are may shift over time; let that evolution — not external influence or pressure — drive change in how you express yourself.
