In today’s noisy world, be a stickler to protect your attention and focus.
“Multi-tasking” is not actually a helpful skill. It doesn’t even exist. It’s really just perpetual task switching resulting in lots of attention residue.
Instead, carve out period of deep work to build the meaningful projects that truly create value for yourself and others.
Be your own credential. That’s the point of the book Crash Your Career in one sentence.
It’s how to get noticed and win opportunities for your career. You no longer need to appeal to third-party institutions to vouch for you with stale, bureaucratized stamps of approval.
In fact, maybe you have no choice but to build a better signal.
