Imagine this hypothetical: you just got a new job. Congratulations! You meet your boss. She’s a seasoned professional in your field. You meet your support staff - they’re headed by one of the best in your industry.
Life is good. This is going to be a cushy position. Sort of. You’ll have to work hard, but you’ll have all the support you need. All you have to do is your job, and you’ll succeed.
Weeks later, you’re on the way to work. You stop at Starbucks. You grab yourself the fancy coffee and the micro sandwich that’s priced like a hoagie.
