What are three career lessons you’ve learned thus far?
1. Everyone is dealing with something, so give people the benefit of the doubt and listen from a place of
compassion
2. Sometimes pushing oneself is useful and at other times, taking a break is equally important
3. The desire to do things perfectly may get in the way of doing things at all. Better to do things as best you
can right now and look forward to progress
