Ever notice how when we’re learning, we tend to bounce around between extremes? For example, we accept a position that ends up not being a fit for us, so we decide to try something that is the complete opposite. Or we decide that one boss isn’t the right fit, so we look for someone who’s the exact opposite of that person.
After trial and error, we finally realize that what we wanted all along was something in-between, and that bouncing around between extremes didn’t work.
It’s OK to try different things, but realize that just because you don’t like something, the answer may not be the exact opposite. Instead, give some thought to what career path you really want to follow. Take the time and do the work to find out what would work best for you. It will be worth it! I promise.
