Foot in the Door
Be willing to do the grunt work now, so that later you can do the fulfilling work.
Be willing to work for lower pay now, so that later you can make bank.
Break into that company or career by showing how much character you have, knowing you are giving a gift to your future self.
This doesn’t mean self-sacrificing or even delayed gratification necessarily. Quite the opposite. Delight and serve others at 110% now so that you’ll build a reputation that will pay you dividends of social capital, career capital, and financial capital.
This is how you build a future.

“Vulnerability sounds like truth, and feels like courage. Truth and courage
aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness.”
