  • Utilize your intuitive powers to enhance your decision-making skills.
  • Explore the philosophical nature and ethical concerns of technology.
  • Emphasize service to others in your leadership approach.
  • Leverage failure to your advantage by learning from it.
  • Rely on your instincts when navigating a data-driven world.
