Honestly, take a nap. Sometimes it’s my body’s way of telling me I’m tired.

What advice would you give a smart and ambitious recent college graduate? What advice should they ignore?

Patience and learn as much as you can everyday, you have a lot of time and you will never stop learning. Nobody knows it all.
Ignore the, “Never take no for an answer“ rule, sometimes no can be very humbling and can lead you to other things that will work out better for you. Everything happens for a reason.
