How to Think About Your Career

Your career is defined by your skills and how you’ve used them, not by any external measure of your progress.

Treat your manager as a coach, not as a judge.

Create a mental image of yourself mastering the skills you most want to master, and believe that that is in your future.

You own your career, and you have more of an ability to shape it than anybody else.
