What Do You Believe In?
If I had to choose a spirit animal, I’d be a shark - relentless, single-minded, and powerful, yet simple.
Little things can have outsize impacts. I once overheard an executive say “the only job security is between your ears”. That simple yet powerful message has stuck with me. I’m a big believer in responsibility - that is, the ability to proactively respond and empower oneself through self-education, initiative, strategic thinking and community engagement.
I’m a student of history, because those who ignore the past risk repeating mistakes. Many of my role models are those who have faced enormous uncertainty, like Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill. My constant goal is to learn what I can from their deeds and apply those lessons in my own life.
As Vince Lombardi famously said: “Be brilliant on the basics”.
