When two smart people say the same thing, in different ways, take heed.

From James Clear:

“Being pleasant and having a good attitude is a simple way to become luckier.

Opportunities come through people, and people are more likely to bring opportunities to people they like.

It’s hard to win if your attitude adds friction to every interpersonal experience.”

From Morgan Housel:

Be pleasant, have a good attitude, be nice. It doesn’t sound hard, but things are complicated. For example, in today’s hot job market many candidates are not showing up for scheduled interviews. And some hires are not showing for their jobs or leaving after a day or two on the job. Ghosting, common in dating, has come to the workplace. It may feel okay in the moment, but you never know when the shoe may be on the other foot.
