2. You should be open to feedback. Obviously it will not always be the positive one. But feedback will surely help you to eradicate flaws and improve your service.
3. Setting goals is very important either for life or for work. Aimless hard work will not going to make any difference. But on the other side setting long term and short term goals will provide line length to your work and make you more prepared.
