One thing we have certainly learned this past year, is the importance of taking good care of ourselves. Stay healthy, keep safe, exercise, eat well, and rest. But what about our intellectual wellbeing? What about our personal growth and professional ambitions? And what about developing our leadership skills? Yes, these need attention too!
