Hi SPs and others!
Without going into detail, I am currently in a bureaucratic institution and I am seeking to position myself for career success.
I am undoubtedly willing to work hard, but I also don't want to be the person who will hoop-jump through every stupid little thing to get there. I like having a life and not working 100 hour workweeks.
I want to tactically and strategically position myself. In other words, I'd like to choose my commitments carefully and look for ways to leverage my time and effort. I'm much better at the long-term strategies than the more practical and immediate strategies.
I'd love any advice from SPs or others who feel they have wisdom and experience.
