What is one thing you would tell a younger version of yourself?
“I was told that I was going to learn and grow throughout my career more from my mistakes than any of my successes. For me, this led to two key principles that I strive to always follow: The first is that I have to constantly push myself outside of my comfort zone to new challenges and know that mistakes will happen. The second, and probably most critical aspect, is shifting my personal mindset around making mistakes. The negative death spiral that can happen when we feel like we have failed is a trap.”
