I suggest you always be focused on experience over the outcome, be humble, curious, inquisitive, and not be scared, overwhelmed, or overconfident about anything. Think through the purpose with right toolset, skillset, and mindset. We should be focused on agility including Learning agility, People agility, change agility, result agility, and self-aware agility. I wish you all the very best and enjoy this continuous journey of learning.”
