Mozilla has organized a series of talks for summer interns. The first was by Selena Deckelmann, Director of Firefox Runtime.
These are some memorable points to think about:
- Creating a circle of work advisers
- Write down your dreams
- Do the hard thing (find a hard problem to tackle)
- Listen to criticism, sometimes
On her slide deck, the slide that shows periods leading to realizing dreams also coincides with periods of struggle. I have to wonder whether I am not struggling enough(?).
