Other key points:
-“Don’t be the smartest person in the room.” Learn from those smarter and more experienced than you whenever possible.
-“If it’s not a Hell Yes then it’s a no.” When taking on new tasks be 100% in or don’t do it at all. This will not only keep you from wasting your time and others’ but it will keep you progressing and becoming better.
