"Don't externalise validation. You alone should be your critic and competition. Believe in yourself"

Jobs that you do in a company, functions you work with are all your study material. So, learn something new, understand the topic, not necessarily legal, sit in functional meetings, read your subjects thoroughly, and stay the course. Don’t fear failing; those lessons you will remember best.
