First, you should remain flexible. If you have a too detailed plan, you may become too rigid and not take advantage of new opportunities. And such opportunities often arise through good networks, as my career has clearly shown. So, I can only recommend connecting with many people, to stay curious, to learn from others, and to build networks. This can also help you foster your own holistic mindset and break free from silos - a very important aspect for me personally. Especially experiences abroad can support an additional change of perspective and an inclusive mindset. Of course, ambition and a strong will also play an important role. But you shouldn't always go straight for it. A healthy amount of reflection is crucial. On the one hand, you should closely observe and evaluate the tasks of colleagues and management positions. On the other hand, you should also reflect on yourself: What are my strengths and where do I have room to improve? The answers to these questions provide a good basis for pushing yourself and developing further. And my final and most important piece of advice: Have fun in what you do. It may sound cliché. But I am a firm believer that this is the only way to develop your full potential. And then success will follow.
