  • Never be afraid to say "I don't know".
  • Have trust in your own ability to overcome hard challenges.
  • Talk with your coworkers/managers about any roadblocks you encounter instead of waiting until it might be "too late".
  • Focus on solutions instead of blaming others.
  • No amount of years of experience can overcome kindness and friendliness when communicating with others.
  • Accept the fact that you will fail, and you will fail really bad. But make sure you never quit.
  • Take small breaks, whether you go to get a coffee, to the bathroom or for walk, your health is more important than deadlines.
