    We change bit by bit, day by day, habit by habit.  We are continually undergoing microevolutions of the self.  Each habit is like a suggestion: ‘Hey, maybe this is who I am.’  If you finish a book, then perhaps you are the type of person who likes reading.  If you go to the gym, then perhaps you are the type of person who likes to exercise.  If you practice playing the guitar, perhaps you are the type of person who likes music.  Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become.  No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your new identity.

    James Clear, Atomic Habits

    In dealing with your career and its inevitable changes, you must think in the following way: You are not tied to a particular position; your loyalty is not to a career or a company.  You are committed to your Life’s Task, to giving it full expression.  It is up to you to find it and guide it correctly.  It is not up to others to protect or help you.  You are on your own.

    Robert Greene, Mastery
