Don Wroblewski discusses his career expectations and how they were mismatched with the research / education system. Learning his path was blocked by the process and over all system he changed direction. Letting go of his expectations allowed him to reframe his own expectations and goals. He is now working in a similar pursuit in administration and killing it. Knowing how to let go has allowed Don to get ahead in ways he never thought possible.
Don points out that aligned expectation and incentives have to match your personal desires. When they do, you are more passionate and successful.
Thank you Don for being a friend, mentor, and excellent interview for Fail Pro.
