Sam: You can use your ego and your attachment to the code, but make it not about yourself. Instead, try to focus on what your code is bringing to other people and maybe that can help you try to figure out how to make it better without getting stuck.
Coraline: We got to see a glimpse into the whole person behind a persona. Even heroes are people with vulnerability, human flaws, anxieties, and weaknesses.
Astrid: Bring your whole self to everything.
Jessica: What we show matters.
Jay: Don’t be too quick to compare yourself to others.
David: Put your ideas out there and get them in front of other people. That is how you manufacture authority.
