My career planning was the worst anybody could have ever planned. I graduated in one field, aimed 4 higher studies in another field n ended up working in another field. I always dreamed of pay packages so high that there were some nights I spent thinking about what I would do with all the money ! I always dreamed of working in a creative industry where I would sit in my office, chewing the pencil, my creative juices flowing, me coming up with a gr8 idea, that idea bringing my company loads of money n me getting everybody's applause n a small part of that money.
Things didn't turn out the way I planned/dreamed. They never do. I'm working in a totally technical field. I never thought I'd wear formals, now I do. I never thought I'd work for such a low pay package,now I do. I never thought that I'll be teaching anybody, now I do, well... partly.
But you know what. Inspite of all that, I'm loving my job. I really do. Think about it, you'll never really know if you like something unless you've tried it. I tried it, thank god, n I like it. Money'll come.., sooner or later., but how many ppl look forward to working everyday? I know I do ! :)
I know it's not right to just go 4 everything u come across , but it won't hurt to give it a try, n who knows...., that one trial can change ur entire life !!! Happy experimenting ppl !!
