Although exploring different interests early in your career is smart, you can't keep your options open forever, Daniel Gulati writes. When you glimpse a career path that matches up with your talents, pursue it even at the expense of other opportunities.

Those who successfully typecast themselves can seize new job opportunities, deliver value quickly, and move forward with confidence," Gulati writes.
