“Piece of Cake”, Cyrus Mody, History

One piece of advice a colleague of mine gives his students is, if someone asks you to do something in your career, the right response is, “Piece of cake!”  If you just approach these tasks cheerfully and with the hope that you’re going to learn something new, even if you didn’t seek out that task, it will allow you to generate a lot of goodwill, but it will also help you learn new skills, which will be useful for other things.
