Make time to join activities which include teamwork. You won’t grow if you are not pushing yourself to work with others. Being surrounded by people will help you figure things out. You’ll not just be gathering more knowledge for doing this, but you’ll definitely enjoy each other’s company.

Take note: Spend more time with people who will help you strive to do better!
