Ali, 28, Writer from Brooklyn, NY It really, really does not matter what other people think of you as long as you are kind, honest and generous. In fact, it is dangerous to put energy into trying to get people to view you in a certain way. Say “no” sooner and more often. Slow down. Seriously. Slow down. Quality will always, always, always trump quantity. And speed makes you miss things - most often and most dangerously, your self.
