I'd change #4 to "Don't be afraid to ask for help". Because if you don't ask, you're unlikely to get help, which means you'll be spinning your wheels, frustrated.

That can happen if you're new, or if you've been at the job many years. Software development is hard, and no one knows everything. The best we can do is help one another.

Unless I missed the intent, to me, hand-holding is getting help without asking for it. And that isn't going to happen.
