“And I made a great number of huge mistakes.  I did some important things right too, but my missteps were legendary (at least in my own mind).”

streetsmartprof‘s insight:

Our passions can come out at the wrong time if we let our emotions run wild. There are times to sit on your hands and keep quiet while the boiling water in your mind simmers down.

I’ve always used a friend and/or peer as a sounding board before making any major decisions which could impact my career. What ever you choose, find something which works for you.

Then make sure to stop, think and look at the future consequences before jumping too far. After a sufficient amount of time, make decisions on your next move to help grow your career, not undermine it.

My favorite of all 5, never burn bridges.
