Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is – George Carlin
Are you picking Should’s over Dreams? Do you feel guilty that your ideal day is doing nothing, that your next career move doesn’t mean a raise, that you prefer a leisurely job over training for marathons?
Make choices about your goals based on your values, interests and needs right now. Don’t let someone else guilt you into poor choices.
From a professional standpoint, don’t assume your true passions are impractical. You can translate your interests, whatever they are, to a viable career option.
