You own your career.
You own your choices.
You are responsible for any and all progress in your life.
People will offer to help and some will be great at helping.
But there is no silver bullet. No magic checklist. No shortcut.
There is a dash of luck which is only useful with self-awareness, and enough preparation to recognize the opportunity and take a chance with it.
Follow your passions, your interests, your drivers.
Embrace change in all its forms.
Define success for yourself and how you will know you're achieving it this week... next month... next year...
Allow yourself to be flexible.
Acknowledge your weaknesses (but don't dwell).
Promote your strengths.
Share your successes.
Open your networks and possibilities will open to you.
