My Advice

"A fool with a plan can outsmart a genius with no plan any day."

Plan your career moves, externally and internally, carefully. Take time out regularly to reflect on what you want from your career and how you are going to get there. Don't be afraid to take risks if you feel it will achieve this career plan and quitting something that clearly isn't working isn't always bad advice.
