What is one habit that has helped you succeed?

Reading. I started using reading as leverage early in my professional career to figure things out in the absence of resources. That small step started a long-lasting habit that gave me a distinct advantage in opportunities testing my talent, resourcefulness, professional growth, and execution. Reading allows me to understand concepts, gain different perspectives, feel confident in my decisions and become a resource for others.
