Everyone Should Know How To Defend Themselves
There is no one I’ve ever met who has such an open, optimistic, and SOLID PLAN to change Kuwait for the better and yet who also knows how to navigate Kuwait’s market and Kuwait’s society–in all it’s flaws and risks–like Lana Al-Resheed. In this double-edged ability, Lana has taught me that there is no reason why you should not train yourself for the world as it is while ALSO working to change it. If you let the world destroy you WHILE you are trying to build it you are under prepared, naive, and a little stupid.
You Have No Idea How An Actual New Field Will Ever Be
No matter how much time and planning you think you’re going to put into a project or a business plan, you will never know it until those training wheels come off and you’re out there on your own FOR REAL. Don’t pretend to be all-knowing and invincible because you will likely just end up looking like a chicken with it’s head cut-off: frantic, annoying, and pointless. Lana’s own open willingness to consider (consider; not accept) a million different ideas and helping hands in the field, despite her own firm knowledge base, has taught me this.
