Generally, goals are positive.
It’s a good thing to set goals, often around achievements we have yet to accomplish.
However, where you are now is a key part of getting to the finish line of your goal.
If you fixate on a future job or project, you can become impatient with your current responsibilities.
And impatience, driven by ambition, can become counterproductive, finding the balance is important.
Be a responsible steward of the job you have, lean in, and grow.
While simultaneously looking for opportunities that align with your interests.
Becoming an asset to your team will put you in a position where your boss feels excited to turn to you when an opportunity arises.
Don’t let ambition prohibit the present.
