I don’t know why I wrote it in OneNote, but it is something I’ve talked about to my direct reports, colleagues and others for a long time. It was simply titled “Rules of the Road” and had the following content: Don’t stress out about things you can’t control – ignore them Don’t stress out about things you can control – fix them Confront someone as soon as you recognize the problem – don’t let it fester!
