When you make mistakes, people will be more understanding and supportive if you’re not usually a jerk.

More important than what you know, or what you can do. More important than who you know, or what they can do. More important than anything you do, in your profession, is your willingness to be kind, forgiving, and humble.

You will make mistakes. When you do, you want to be surrounded in supportive people, who will help you to deal with those mistakes. They’ll be more willing to do that if you’ve been that way with them.
