Do what your career requires.
Don’t waste time perseverating, just get to it.
Don’t look over your shoulder to see if someone is watching. You’re not doing this for them. You’re doing it because it’s right.
Don’t wait until you think you can reach Elon Musk level brilliance, just be satisfied with each small step you make in the right direction.
Then, once you have made that step, do it again and again and don’t stop to congratulate yourself. Just keep doing what you have to do.
