Sometimes, I think most good career advice boils down to some version of –
“Don’t be in a hurry to climb some arbitrary career ladder or obtain some badge of supposed honor. Hustle, instead, to identify and solve problems that you think are challenging, useful, and learning filled – even if they’re risky at times. And, while you’re at it, invest effort in becoming self aware, doing good work, and being kind to people along the way.”
As with all great advice – it is relatively easy to formulate and say/find and very hard to live by.
