What's the most important lesson you've learned in your career to date?

I've learned that not everything has to be big and not everything has to be all at once — you don't have to show up with a full-fledged strategic plan to make a significant impact in your work. Change often occurs little by little right under our noses, but adds up over time. I've learned that tracking and leaning into these 1-degree shifts is essential. If you’re thinking "I haven't made any progress on this initiative,” pause to reflect on all the small things you've accomplished that feed into those higher-level goals. You'll often be surprised!
