People are essentially reliable

From “Lessons from the Anti-Mentor” (via my folks):

  • People are essentially reliable; therefore, their actions should be understood with that consistency in mind (e.g. always generous, always selfish, always doing, always (just) talking, etc.). Trust your instincts here.
  • “You spend too much time at work to spend it around people you don’t like or trust. If you’re not having fun, it’s time to move on.”
