Never judge talent

You see someone who looks like she’s great with people and you assume she’ll be a sales star.

Or you see a pale-faced nerd and you assume he’ll be a great engineer.

The friendly lady turns out to be unable to sell.

The nerd turns out to be a terrible engineer.

Don’t make quick judgments of people.

Keep your mind open to a person’s aptitudes, give them a chance to prove themselves in what they want to do.

Maybe the friendly lady is in fact a terrific coder.

Maybe the nerd is in fact an irresistible salesman.

If you judge to early you’ll never find out.

Never judge talent.
