I've noticed that for many of us, careers are binary things--we do this job OR that one. I can work for someone else OR I can work for myself.
Twenty years ago, even ten years ago, this either/or thinking made a lot of sense in a more stable world with relatively limited options. For good or ill, that world has changed though. There is little place for binary thinking. We need to move from careers based on "Or" thinking to careers that embrace "And" thinking.
Try looking at some of the career decisions and issues you have before you. How might they be transformed by removing the word "or" and replacing it with "and"?
