And having empathy for somebody and saying I understand what you're going through. It hasn't happened to me, but I can relate, I can find a way to relate to what you're going through, or at least be in a capacity to empathize, to be able to tell whatever story that is.” 23:00 Dr. George James “I think you're talking about the pressure of being a high achiever in jobs that are highly scrutinized, there are times you just got to go level up. And then people don't often see the other side that like what it takes out of you, the pain that you might experience, the opportunities that you don't have to even catch your breath.” 37:00 Christie ileto “The only thing you have control over is how you react to it. Any of you keep worrying about this, you're going to be crazy. You're going to make the wrong decisions, or you're going to do X, Y, and Z. And I think everybody has that at some point.
