What "Advice" Would You Give to Someone in College Before They Go Into Business?

At a recent mastermind group, several business professionals came up with this list of keys to career advice:

• Think globally (Learn Chinese!)
• Listen.
• Ask the right question to the right person at the right time
• Find your passion
• Be humble
• Do what you are
• Acknowledge your weaknesses and play to your strengths
• Be a continuous learner
• Don’t fear change. Take advantage of it and view it as an opportunity
• Change if you're not having fun -- careers, companies or positions.
• Be an expert in your field
• Develop your “people” skills.

What is missing? What is outdated? Please post your thoughts!
