"Don't underestimate the value of 'boring' skill building. Even if you are not 2000% excited about your job, mastering tangible skills is highly valuable and could propel you into a position you are excited about. Looking back on my first couple of years out of school at a top accounting firm, I worked insane hours performing boring tasks — it was all spreadsheets, number crunching, and analyzing costs. While I was oblivious at the time, those years were incredibly important because I’ve utilized those skills frequently while owning my own businesses. In fact, I don't think I would be running my own company had I not built that 'boring' skill set."
