I’ve talked to a few people on this topic and I see a lot of split responses on the topic.
Some people start their career in a certain industry or field and have aims to how they work to the role in that field.
Others will start their career somewhere they’re interested in and adapt their plan along the way as they find what does or doesn’t work for them.
I’m definitely in the latter camp for a handful of reasons - one of them is directly related to my health.
I went to college for a degree in cinema production and photography, with an idea I’d be spending all of my time on sets.
Flash forward to a diagnosis of #ThyroidCancer which led to thyroid removal and the joy that is #ChronicIllness associated with a complete thyroidectomy. I knew immediately fatigue would not allow me to spend 8+ hours a day standing around on a set. So I shifted my goal. There’s a certain grief that comes with that, but there’s also a strength in knowing things can be unpredictable and adapting to that change.
I’m curious to know, do you have something specific you are looking for in your career or are you following the winding path as it unfolds?
