Stew and Monique talk about the importance of continual learning -- outside of school and outside of the classroom -- to build and maintain a sustainable career. They discuss how your own life is a laboratory and you need to reflect on what’s working and what’s not and make adjustments. They talk about the importance of capitalizing on small wins to create a cycle of continued development and growth. And they emphasize that the foundation is you; and you need to work on understanding yourself, your strengths, your values, and what is unique about you.
