2. Go where the current takes you.
3. People aren’t invested in whether you fail or succeed. So get it done. You only have one life and you came here to play.
4. Don’t be married to your material. Be agile and incorporate whatever comes. Give your audience an experience that can never be duplicated.
5. Making it in any career is a marathon, not a sprint. Show up for the work. Be here for the long haul.
6. There are worlds of warmth that can be opened just by having a conversation.
