Enjoy this week's selection!

“You are the DRI of your career” (DRI: Directly Responsible Individual). This reasonates very well with me and how my career has progressed so far. I think Cate really nails five core elements of how to be the DRI of your career:
- Expect less from your job and more from your career.
- Learn from feedback.
- Own your professional development.
- Distinguish what your employer rents versus what they buy.
- Build your support system.
Highly recommended to read the full article.
