Contents: Whatever gets you in the game --
Not everyone is going to like you --
Not everyone is going to like me --
The person who hires you is your number one stockholder --
The best gift you can give a stranger is an audience --
Up beats down! --
Ask! --
Don't call just when you need something --
People don't mind being used; they mind being discarded --
Grin when you fight --
It's not crowded at the top --
No one's ever late for an execution --
Nobody wants a level playing field --
Fire when ready --
Attack from a defensive position --
Don't pick on someone your own size --
Rites of passage --
Keep good company --
Lowball it! --
When in doubt, put it out --
You only get one reputation --
Aim high --
Speak up! --
The bug --
Where ever you go, that's where you're going to be.
Responsibility: Chris Matthews.
