Just pick something. It’s widely assumed that if you root around long enough, you’ll come up with a career that makes you say, “Eureka, I have found it!” Rather, I’ve found that most people who are happy in their careers wouldn’t have known that in advance. If they had waited on the sidelines for that Eureka! moment, they might as well have been waiting for Godot. In most cases, you can’t just hear about a career and expect to feel ecstatic any more than you can expect to have an orgasm just by listening to someone. So after a modest amount of career exploration, just pick the career that feels best and start down that path as though you were passionate about it. If you feel you made a bad choice, it’s usually quickly apparent and you can then try another career path.
