Anyone who has ever watched Suits, a USA Network law drama, would agree that there is a charm and wit about Harvey Specter. He is smart, attractive and there are endless things one can learn from him if only we look beyond the drama and the fun we have while watching Suits.
Here are 18 things to learn from Harvey Specter of Suits:
#1. Take the way which allows you to avoid going to court because it is better to settle before war rather than fighting one.
#2. Measure life and the things it has to offer, measure the life you want, take risks and live the life of your dreams. If you don’t take the risk, you won’t have an extraordinary life.
#3. Always have a woman like Donna around.
#4. Have only one thing in your mind – how to make it big in life. If you don’t focus on how little you will lose if you take a certain way, all your focus will be on achieving as much as you can.
#5. Focus on the way you look. Suit up. Always.
#6. Take responsibility of your actions. Taking Mike in was Harvey’s decision and he takes full responsibility of that decision and deals with the consequences, no matter what.
#7. If you believe that everyone plays the game by the rules, you are naive and stupid, not them. Break the rules if they get you to your destination.
#8. Plan the man, not the odds. Logic will only take you so far but you need to have the emotional intelligence to deal with the people not only the situation.
#9. Harvey is perfectly spot on when it comes to reading people. Everyone can be read if only you pay attention. Open your eyes, notice and then use No. 08 to win people over.
#10. In difficult situations, don’t lose your calm and your cool. If you look like you have your shit together, others will believe it too.
#11. Winners never make excuses.
#12. If you’re good at what you do, there is no reason not to brag about it.
#13. Never lie, not even to protect someone. Lying is not okay.
#14. Have other interests outside of work. Seriously, have you even seen the Vinlys collection he has?
#15. Think like a pro. Always. Even if you are a rookie, don’t think like one. It makes all the difference.
#16. There is a solution to every problem, just keep looking.
#17. Instead of complaining about a problem, fix it.
