Selecting ice cream from Baskin Robbins 31 flavours is my biggest nightmare. Rocky Road or Strawberry Cheesecake? Waffle cone, sugar cone, or cup? Can’t I just have it all? To all the Indecisives of the world, I feel your anxiety (and I saved you a small spoon).
The point is eventually you have to commit. Make a choice and run with it (well, pay first then run). When it comes to my career, I have similar anxious feelings of just wanting to do it all. I want to make a difference and a change and an impact and… basically solve world peace. I want to learn about mechanical engineering, computer science, classic literature, medieval architecture, languages, business, etcetera. Absorb all knowledge and wisdom known to man.
So on ‘commitment’, I’m working on it.
What I have come to realise is that commitment to an area of study or trade by no means defines the rest of your career or binds you to one profession. At this very moment in time all that matters is committing to who I am now, what makes me happy now, and the passions and values I carry now.
And so my career flavour of choice, Amanda’s Two Scoops of Original.
