Are you confused and not sure what career to choose? You know you want success, you want to love your job so which career will suit you best? What should you concentrate on to succeed? Let’s solve the mystery, let’s analyze your situation. Don’t waste your time and opportunity.
To choose the best job first you have to try, sample what’s out there. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain, try different jobs, learn different skills, gain valuable experience. Take a close look at yourself and answer honestly: what are your strong sides, what are your ambitions? Let’s make it obvious putting it all down on paper.
Create a table of 5 columns. Mark the first column “Jobs”, list in rows all the jobs you held and all the jobs you plan on having. Mark the second column “Can you make a decent living doing this job?”, answer honestly (Yes, No, Perhaps). This column will be the decisive column in the decision making on whether or not to pursue the job/career. Mark the third column “Doing this job are you improving your possibilities, are you inquiring useful knowledge?”, answer honestly (Yes, No, Perhaps). Mark the third column “Do you love this job?”, answer honestly (Yes, No, Perhaps). Mark the fifth column “Results”. Let’s analyze the results. If you answered “Yes” to all three questions for a specific job, put in the result column- “Yes“, meaning you should definitely pursue this career. Similarly, if you answered “No” to all three questions for a specific job, put “No” in the result column, meaning you should not pursue the career. If you answered twice Yes or No, the majority wins, place the corresponding answer in the result column. If you answered “Perhaps” to any of the questions, and if there is no majority look at the second column named “Can you make a decent living doing this job?”, if you answered “Yes” in that column, place “Yes” in the result column, similarly, if you placed “No” or “Perhaps” in that column, place “No” in the result column.
Putting down your thoughts and feelings on paper makes decision making much simpler. The confusion is gone. The truth is staring right back at you, concentrate your energy on the deserving object.
