"When there's an opportunity, put yourself in the middle of it, figure it out and figure out how you can make a difference. That's where all my opportunities come from in life. You have to invent it every day, and you have to see opportunity where it doesn't exist."
"Bill Clinton said that one should always take feedback seriously but not personally. High-performing teams need to be constantly learning and constantly coaching."
"You look at the best athletes in the world -- every single one of them has multiple coaches because it's all about improving your performance. They're never satisfied with their performance because they are always looking to improve. The truth is the most high-performing people are the ones that are constantly trying to improve. So, you have to be able to have that feedback cycle. It has to be blameless, and you have to depersonalize it. If you take it personally, then you can't even have a conversation."
