I came across this article on LinkedIn yesterday: “Class of 2013: Four Things You Must Unlearn Immediately“. I have decided to share it here because it resonated with me.

The one item in particular that I had the most trouble unlearning is the idea that getting help is some form of cheating. In the real world, collaboration is essential, and trying to do everything yourself is the key to burning out.
