Hi! 👋 I’m Jessa.

I blog daily about life, work, and the future.

Working on the same field

Taptaptap on a surface, and you might just make a hole, eventually.

I’ve heard stories about people who started a specific career in their 20s and continued to develop and improve themselves under the same track. Now in their 50s, they find themselves established after hard work and building connections just because they rooted themselves in the same field for three decades.

No, they did not stay in the same job for 30 years. They had multiple lateral moves, even upward. But the principle is that they developed their skills deeper and deeper in the same field. And their consistency paid off, big time — just because they did not jump off from one area of expertise to the next.
