A disclaimer that should accompany every conversation on career choices – “There may be patterns to be found when we look at careers on average. But, one person’s career journey is idiosyncratic. So, no one knows what’s right for you.”
Ultimately, all inputs and perspectives are just that – inputs and perspectives. No one has the right answer. All we can do is do our research and then make the best call knowing what we know.
When we know better, we’ll do better.
