What is your favorite work-related experience?
Favorite work-related experience. I have one. I was doing an exit conference with a group of world-class physicists. When I finished, one of them was shaking his head. I asked what was wrong and he said: “Nothing. I just don’t know how you keep all this stuff straight.” I thought it was amusing and charming at the time, thinking that someone that smart thought what I was doing was complicated. There is no way I could listen to him talk about what he does for an hour and feel like I understood everything either, but there is an important message in that moment. What you do and enjoy every day might seem complicated to others, and second nature to yourself, but working together, we all have something to contribute.
