  25. Work with all your might and without reservation. However, the people who work with and the content of the work are more important than the level of effort.
  26. Achieve global excellence in the career field of one’s choice. Continuously redefine your career until your ideals come true.

  27. Use your expertise and leverage, and ultimately you will get what you deserve.
