Spend 3-5 years in 2 large companies post uni/college. Learn how to operate there in relative safety.

Spend 20% of your week meeting new / interesting people. Then get out and go somewhere smaller or, even better, start your own thing. Don’t wait any longer or it will be too hard to leave the nest. You only start learning when you leave the nest. Don’t waste time…

Aim for the top of the mountain, but savour every moment of the climb.

I’d say slow down and think more. Don’t get so stuck in the day to day that you forget what your real skills and talents are, and make time to think and focus on the big stuff.

Early in your career you spend so much time delivering, and so little focus on the future, everything is a review and a look at the past. Stop. Slow down. Plan your future and spend twice as much time thinking about what next and less worrying about what has already happened and you can’t change!
