” Everyone you meet always asks if you have a career, are married or own a house as if it’s some kind of grocery list. But no one ever asks if you’re happy ” – Heath Ledger
This quote has always stuck with me, I genuinely believe that if you chase money or status you will always be looking for more. However if you chase happiness then the job will come, the partnership will happen and the home will be built.
I’ve changed career quite a few times already, been to college for something that wasn’t related to my career but just for the sake of interest and somehow managed to land in a field of work that I really get a buzz from.
If I could go back in time to my 16 year old self choosing subjects in school for my future, I would advise to go with whatever was going to make me happy at that time because the skills I’ve learned since leaving school are the ones that I now require, not necessarily the skills I learned while sat in class.
If you could go back would you change the choices you made?
