“Manage yourself & other’s expectations”
“Learning what and when to say yes to things that come along”

Check your Privileges.
When you are young and fresh into the working world, you are excited and nervous all at the same time. However, there is also a side of you where you think you deserve to be here and the Employers has made the best decision of his/her life hiring you. Well, guess what. That’s not true at all. You are just as replaceable as the person who was hired before you. So check yourself.
Don’t be cocky.
It’s always important to see that you’re in a same room with people who know more than you, even if they’re not in the same field of knowledge as you. Their knowledge and your knowledge can integrate and feed into the different lessons you are (will be) learning, and one day you might actually need it. Not to mention, it widens your horizons and you never know when it might actually be useful.
If you keep your mind open – it’ll all come around.
So always keep trying new things, do until you can’t anymore.
