Monday Musing: Transitions aren’t just about doing something different
A career transition is a lifestyle redesign that often entails rethinking how you want to feel at the end of the day, how you want to spend your time, and how this relates to your longer term goals. When you feel this need for change, it isn’t necessarily related to a fancier title or more money, but your inner voice whispering that you could do more, be more, experience and achieve more.

★ The future belongs to deep generalists, people who combine two or more diverse domains and integrate them into something defensible and unique.
★ Luck surface area is a combination of doing great things and telling lots of people. Telling lots of people without doing anything interesting is a waste of time. Call it digital noise.
