Whether it’s a pitch, a presentation or a looming hoard of ravenous zombies coming at you, it is always good to remind yourself that “Winter is Coming.”

Tradition exists for a reason, but you shouldn’t be too terrified to break away from it. Sometimes you need to “break the wheel” like Daenerys Targaryen and change the status quo.

Being open to change can be the catalyst to discover new solutions, the spark to think outside of the box and to find new ways to solve old problems.

Surround Yourself with People who Support You

Having friends and colleagues who love, understand you and encourage your goals is one of the best ways to succeed in life and progress further in your career.
