Really liked this article. I think number one should be 'Tech is only half the game; soft skills do matter', I personally didn't start to realize this until about 10 years in.

Also, I personally felt more satisfied when I started viewing my assignments with the question 'How will this bring value to the company?' When I started asking that to management, they responded favorably. I found that managers had greater satisfaction with me since I was starting to think of 'the big picture'.
