Logical descions aren’t always the best decisions. Sometimes you have to make choices based on your heart’s desire – like when you choose a life partner, ice cream flavor or a career.
There is no such thing as a good career – a physician could be a great career if you love it or the worst career imaginable if you don’t . Same goes for law, engineering, nursing or counselling careers.
Ideally, you want to make choices where your skills, interests and enthusiasm are all high – we all need to work with our hearts and heads. If you have to choose one or the other, then the heart is the way to go. You will always be willing do the the hard work necessary to excel in your field if you love what you do compared to the mediocre job you would do in a career that was supposed to be good but where you had no interest.
Life is too short to do something you don’t love and if you’re lucky enough to know what that it then it’s important that you figure out a way to go and do it!
