The relationship escalator is that idea: we hopped on the escalator at the same time, we're all going to go at the same pace.
Active listening is a two-way street.
We choose the degree to which we invest in relationships.
Be inspired. Level up. Do some quests. Expand your skill tree. Get every last achievement because if it is true that our entire universe... is a game, shouldn't we be playing more of it?
The next time that you run into a design problem you're trying to fix, do what I do: steal from the universe.

The universe is impossibly good.

I always tell people, know what you are excellent at, and own, and articulate your unique value that you bring to your job. And when you have that, you can defend it, and you can feel confident, as you build your career in the direction you want to go.
What we try to achieve with the museum: to find a bridge above every different singularity. We have different identities, but we have cultural values that we share above our singular identities.
