Make a plan
Make a plan. How true.
This is very important. I thought I had made a
plan - going through a 20-week IT education.
(After failing the backdoor into law studies,
despite me coming out on top of my class). Not so.
(Mind you, I've got a nice job now - with good
possibilities of long business trips to tropical
countries so I don't whine too much).
Had I sat down a little more I would have found
the project I wanted to do - which I found out
some time later, when all my former contacts were
almost gone, and the times now are quite wrong for
the idea. (Although it might actually happen, I'm
still, somewhere in my heart, playing with it).
Bottom line. Plan your future career. Take a few
days being lazy, revisit your plan. Thoroughly
think about the plan. Discuss it critically with a
good friend. If it still feels right go for it.
Otherwise it was probably the wrong idea.
