picking the right hills

“Lightning rarely strikes. Instead, achievement is often the result of stepwise progress, of doing something increasingly difficult until you get the result you seek.”

“The craft of your career comes in picking the right hills. Hills just challenging enough that you can barely make it over. A series of hills becomes a mountain, and a series of mountains is a career.”

When I read Seth Godin’s post about An Endless Series of Difficult But Achievable Hills, I just had to share it. A quick, but powerful read, this post sums up how I feel about the progress of my career in the last four years and how I try to make it continue to grow. It’s been difficult, sometimes overwhelming, but I’ve taken risks and they’ve paid off so far. All you can do is keep climbing!
