I was recently listening to a podcast by Dear HBR by Harvard Business Review entitled, Career Transitions. One individual who wrote in to the show, writes of wanting to leave her chosen field after years of school and spending thousands of dollars for her education. She speaks about no longer enjoying her profession and wants to get out.
This had me thinking about the choices that we make about our career trajectory. I wonder how much of the decision-making is based on what others want rather than what we want to pursue. So often, we give the opinion of parents, friends and society greater power than our own.
If you are considering whether to go to college, take the job in the family business or saying yes to entrepreneurial endeavour, figure out first if this is what you really want for your life at this time. After all, you are the one who will have the experience of whatever you choose.
