Work towards a shift that starts with knowing there will be change, but you [as a person] will not be reduced by it. Continue with a primary focus on growing something better together, finding the common ground, the common goals and the collective win.

Stay determined to reach your goals and be measured on “how” you get there.

Expectations tend to be self-fulfilling.

Don’t overlook the “small things” in an eagerness to advance, they are the proving grounds for good habits. Scale and expansion don’t change the nature of your habits, it just amplifies them.
