1) Learn a foreign language well -- any language.
2) Go abroad -- Can't base a career in International Relations -- even a DC-based policy position without first-hand understanding of the world and its people.
3) Remember that Americans are not considered God's gift to the world so work hard in whatever you do to earn respect.
4) Remember that there is no perfect model of policy or business in the international community. The Left and the Right both have an awful lot to answer for. Form your opinions from the facts on the ground and don't be dazzled by ideologies.
