A few lessons I learned by murdering three tadpoles as a kid:
1. Don’t kill anything.
That applies to tadpoles and ideas.
2. Trust your gut.
The tadpole fiasco taught me how to handle life’s iffy moments. So when a career on Wall Street didn't feel quite right, I left.
3. Accept failure.
As Master Yoda once said, “The greatest teacher, failure is.”
