What does it take to be successful?

- What is your work philosophy?
My work philosophy is to evaluate each assignment in a personal way and to take the conscious decision whether or not I want to get involved, why and to what extent. Avoiding stress and reflecting on the time devoted to each task is crucial as well as trying to specialize more and more in order to grow in the areas of your interest and to be able to get rid of what is done only for money.
