If we’ve bought tenure, a lifetime appointment or just a very safe gig, what ought to we do with it?
One choice is to race to the underside, to chase short-term self-focused outcomes and to see how a lot we are able to get away with. (Most likely, fairly a bit).
The opposite is to take this uncommon probability to race to the highest. To do issues just because they have to be completed, not as a result of we’ve got to do them.
The factor is, for all of us, our tenures are concurrently safer and extra fragile than we understand. May as properly act accordingly.
