While I’m impressed by thoughtful people who try to plan the next decade of their career moves, I gave him some contrary advice
Don’t overplan your career.
Alex Taussig

I THINK THE USEFULNESS and capacity to plan a decade in advance is now a thing of the past, when where there was systemic career/industry stability. Historically, job promotions typically happened within the organisation, and hence the concept of a corporate ladder. In contrast, nowadays it is more like a series opportunistic zig-zags between places, sometimes appearing to go sideways or even downwards.

Notwithstanding this, I think there is still value in having broad goals and principles which you wish to still have a decade later.
As Bill Gates once said, “Most people over-estimate what they can achieve in a year, but under-estimate what they can achieve in a decade.”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
