I’m not suggesting an approach that’s devil-may-care, or harum-scarum. But you find your voice among leaders and are more apt to put forward ideas in a calculated, well-conceived way.”
Ironically, this makes you a better employee. If you play your cards right, this confidence can make your journey to early retirement even faster than you expected through promotions and raises.
