Know when To Speak Up & Know When to Shut Up (Silence can also be quite powerful)…  Break the Rules: Don’t Be Patient. Be All In or Get Out. No Halfway.  Make Mistakes. Own Them. Apologize and Learn.  You’re Not Going to Like Everyone. Everyone isn’t Going to Like You. That’s Okay. Be Kind & Respect Differences.
