Some of My Key Takeaways:

  • Be grateful for the opportunity to be you
  • Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care
  • I takes more energy to be who you aren’t than it does to be who you are
  • Nobody cares how you start, they care how you finish
  • Let others define you as a leader
  • Be a noticer
  • People have dealt with what you’re dealing with, let them teach you what they’ve learned
  • It doesn’t matter how you think you’re coming across, it matters how others are perceiving it
  • You have to make half-time adjustments
  • Own your family life, your work won’t do it for you!
