How other people perceive you is going to be very important right now. Your reputation is something that you really need to focus on. That whole "live and let live" attitude is usually the right one to go by, but not now. Not when there's so much at stake. You need to impress a few important folks who can make or break your future. The good news is that these people already think you're pretty incredible. All you need to do is verify that they're correct.
