What's the best career advice you've ever gotten?

I think it's one I got a long time ago and give it out a lot: Know yourself. Know yourself very well. Be very honest with what you're good at and your strengths and limitations. We all have them. And then I always say "do what you love," which comes from our founder of Gap Inc. Don Fisher, and I kind of augment that with also "do what you're good at." You might love something, but you've got to make sure you're also good at doing that.
