My notes and thoughts:
10Xers are clear-eyed and stoic. They accept, without complaint, that they face forces beyond their control.
10Xers are disciplined, have values, goals, and perform.
10Xers don't follow other people's advice; they instead look for evidence. They observe and experiment. And gets the engagement going.
Channel ego's into the company or leave it at the door.
Prepare for worst-case scenarios.
