“If you can learn to tolerate change, ambiguity, and uncertainty, you will be successful in this field.” That was the answer my supervisor gave me when I asked him how I could be a really good instructional designer. It was 1989, and I had been working at it for a whole year. I really wanted to know! I must have looked crestfallen, because he added, “Don’t worry. You’ll get it later.” Great. Thanks, Boss.
