It’s an age old question “If you could go back in time, what would you do differently…?”
Recently I’ve been thinking about this myself. Right now I’m not doing much with my life, which I don’t really like and thinking back, I know it’s my own fault – I never knew what I wanted to do and still don’t. Yes, I have heard the term “get a job” many times, which I have no problem with doing! My problem with it being, “stuck” in the same job with it not really being something I wanted to do.
Which brings me to my point, in answer to the question. I would know what I want to do and speak forward about it. Yes, obvious to some, I’ve always had an interest in web development. Since I did a little back years back, I was interested then and have been since. I just never followed it through, for the shear reason of being embarrassed about it. If you ask me why, I have no idea. It’s just something I never liked to speak up about, regardless as to how much I liked it. I suppose one of my fears was not being very good at it. I’m no professional, I know the basics, That’s it. Still, it is an interest nevertheless and I should have followed it through. Yes, I would like to know and understand it on a more professional level, but unfortunately I don’t see that happening. Not anytime soon anyway.
So what I’m trying to say in a simpler choice of words, is to those still in education, not “knowing”, based on my past. I believe you should choose something which you enjoy, could see yourself doing. Regardless as what you may think others think about you for doing so. You like it, it’s your interest and surely that counts for something.
So what about you guys, if you could change something or do something differently, what would it be?
