My Advice (Short and to the Point, in the Spirit of Hillel)
by Jeremy Ben-Ami

Study the game.
Learn the rules.
Know what it takes to compete.
If you’re losing, study the leader.
If you don’t like the rules, work to change them.
But don’t complain.
To change the world, play hard at all times.
And win.
