If someone is going to work with you for a long time, what is important they know about you that might not be immediately obvious? by Yonason Goldson

I’m not a religious fanatic.

In my TEDx talk, I describe my first encounter with a Chassidic rabbi: his worldliness, accessibility, and insightful perspectives blew away my expectations and my stereotypes.

When we make snap judgments, we often find it difficult to reverse them later, even when faced with incontrovertible evidence that we’re wrong. My own familiarity with modern culture filtered through my tradition of ancient wisdom gives me a unique outlook on life and business that others tell me they never would have anticipated when we first met.

Curb your assumptions. We all know what happens when you ASSUME.
