What’s the best thing about your job?

What is something you learned in the last week?
In the last week, I have learned that humans contain enough iron to make a 3-inch nail.
If you could pick one superpower, what would it be?

How do you define success?
Success is looking back at your younger self and wondering if you would be proud of what you have done.
