Earn your stripes

It may not be ideal work. But, we have to earn our stripes.

There are rare moments in time when we can bypass concepts like expertise and tenure. A one-of-a-kind opportunity might come your way. Or, you just might find yourself in the right place, at the right time, and create one for yourself.

But, lucky moments aside, most of us have to do things via the long route. We just have to put in the time and demonstrate our ability to do consistent good work.

But, that’s how it is done. The best investment strategy is to invest in lines, not dots or track records, not one-off achievements.

As Denzel Washington said – “Do what you gotta do so you can do what you wanna do.”

We have to earn our stripes.

  1. This is sooo true Rohan. You got to earn your stripes and put in the work!

    Of course, earning stripes isn’t the ideal route, for a lot of people, because it really doesn’t make for great IG pictures and Snapchats haha
