Freedom comes from responsibility, not the lack of it.

Freedom comes from responsibility, not the lack of it.


When I was younger in my career, I thought maximizing freedom meant having less work to do.


Every new project was exciting, but also dreadful.


Responding to emails over the weekend felt like a failure — of boundaries between “personal” and “professional.”


As I got older, I realized that freedom comes from responsibly, not the lack of it.


Responsibility creates boundaries — giving freedom more definite meaning and feeling.


More importantly, responsibly creates autonomy: autonomy over one’s career, destination and, ultimately, time.


Taking charge of your career, rather than being a passive passenger watching it unfold, is your ticket to freedom.
