We all talk a lot about how unproductive we are because of the DBD. It's an exaggeration, though, since CGB has some of the most powerful minds in industries as varied as lawyering, banking, marketing, dentistry, chemistry, construction of nuclear weapons, etc.
But today, I thought I'd shift this towards a new focus: How has the DBD helped you? It could be anything as simple as recommendations for travel, fashion advice (you're welcome), networking, etc.
I can list a couple.
One time, I was going to a wedding a debating what to wear. RaptorCallOnMe recommended straying away from black tie and wearing something more colourful. Turned out to be great advice! #rishiweddingtalk
Another time, I mentioned I was applying to Haas for b school and daveman spoke with me for some time about his experiences as Haas, which really helped me on my essays.
So, how about you guys? Let's hear some stories! (Beyond the fact that it's fun, we're all awesome, and it's a great diversion from reality)
