Wisdom of Women 1

A while back I was very happy to talk with Mary Beard. Mary is professor of Classics at Cambridge University, now very well known for her appearances on Mary Beard courtesy of BBCTV. She always has something to say worth listening to as you can see in my interview with her here.

Mary has some characteristically  straightforward advice when asked about her ‘life lessons’.

Good old fashioned exam instructions serve well in life:

‘Irrelevance will be penalised’ (answer the bloody question);

‘Write legibly’ (make sure that they understand what you’re saying); and of course, Molesworth’s version –

‘Do not write on both sides of the paper at once,’ which I think translates as ‘Keep Focused’.

Sound advice.

If you were asked to share your life lessons (so far) what would you say?
