For the Rest Of Your Life

Somebody made an interesting comment to me today. We were talking about picking degrees, and they said ‘it’s a big decision to make, when it’s gonna be what you do for the rest of your life’.

Huh.

I guess it is, if you look at it that way. How do you know what you’re gonna want to do in 5, 10 , 20 years? What’s the one thing that you’ll enjoy now, but also later?

I actually don’t know. I don’t even know if there is something I’m always going to enjoy.

For me, what I enjoy most is learning something new. The idea of committing to a profession for the rest of my life frightens the heck out of me.

This got me thinking, is there not a different way? Can I do loads of different things, not just one?

If I could, what would I even do?

I asked Callum and Angus to list their top 5 alternative careers, under the condition that they could only work in each for 2 years.

Here’s my list:

  1. Bar Manager
  2. Writer
  3. Ski Instructor
  4. Management Consultant
  5. Marketing Guru

That is all.
