Even today, there’s so much griping about the opportunities we don’t get, the hierarchy and the job titles and all that nonsense.
Here’s an idea – why not be so darn valuable that you can write your own ticket? Take whatever they’re asking you to do, double that, and do it without breaking a sweat. And on top of that, do what you want.
It’s true, this isn’t a shortcut. If anything it’s a “long cut.”
No one said you’d get there without working really hard. And at the end of all this you’re exactly where you want to be, which is way better than complaining about all that cool stuff they’re not letting you do.
