If you really hate when people point out to you how foolish you’re being when you’re feeling bad or frustrated, you probably shouldn’t read this blog post.
Especially if you’re working in the IT industry and feeling stuck in your career right now. If that describes you, then this blog post is going to make you feel pretty foolish so you should probably just put it down and move on to some other reading material.
On the Other Hand
If, on the other hand, you realize that what you need right now is a swift kick in the keister, then you’ve come to the right place. Look, all of this is going to be stuff you already know to some extent, so read it because you really need to read it right now.
Almost anyone who works alongside you in the IT industry will tell you that the primary reason they stay in it is because it is constantly changing, growing, and expanding. What was true yesterday is already outdated today, and what was new yesterday is about to be upgraded, updated, or replaced. Keeping up with it all is a big part of the challenge, but also what makes it so constantly stimulating.
So if you’re feeling stuck in your career in IT, own it. Take full responsibility for it and for fixing it right away.
