Five moves beyond
“We often make career choices by looking at what’s right in front of us. We prepare for the next move, not the five moves beyond that.
This is ok early on when we have less conviction over who we are, what we’re good at, and what we like. But each move should bring us more clarity, helping us head in a direction aligned with where we want to be long-term.
It’s always worth trading money I have today for something I would regret at the end of my life.
Risks only get harder to take later in life. It’s an exorbitant privilege being able to chase upside rather than guard against downside.”
