Be curious.
Ask questions no one dares to ask. Be a legend.
Dare to be strange and unusual.

They’re not deadlines, they’re sad lines.
No one is going to die, someone will just be a little sad. That’s ok, they’ll get over it.

Imposter syndrome plagued me for years. “I shouldn’t be here.”
If you got the job, you’re in the right place.

Teach people how to test and teach them how not to test. Don’t too much. You can stop. Knowing when to stop is valuable.

Make sure the things you’re measuring is the thing you want to understand.
Make sure you have a countermeasure.
Have a short term metric.
My favorite metric is the level of panic in a developer’s eyes when you tell them you’re able to release to production.
