Am I wrong for being here?

Do I really belong under that type of pressure?

Put in your 10,000 hours

Don’t take it personally

Know it’s human to make mistakes

But don’t get too comfortable

Emphasize the positive

Focus — especially near the end

Know your role

Keep improving

Be passionate about what you do
