"Get out of your comfort zone. Don't be ruled by inertia. Don't just do what you're best at, keep learning and improving yourself and learning new skills. Read at least one business book every month. Encourage others to give you constructive criticism. Work on your weakness, whether it's time management, communication, math, strategic thinking, prioritization, time management, creativity, or whatever."
