Completely disregarding most career advice older people give me. Your teachers mean the best, but other than common sense, their advice is dated 20 or 40 years old. Their advice is often about how to become somebody like them, and you’re not them.

My advice is use common sense and do whatever you want. Focus on the topics you’re interested about, and if it upsets friends and family, so what?

This way you only have yourself to credit or blame later in life.

NEVER be afraid to fail. Without failure you wont grow.

Always be uncomfortable in what you do since comfort = complacency.

Set goals both short term as well as long term (30/60/90 day and/or1/3/5 year).

Find your passion and follow it no matter how hard it may seem at times.
Great advice! Jeff Arnold

I've found that visualizing where I would like to be in both a one-year, a five-year, and a ten-year plan has given me a better mindset to start looking at what I want to do. Setting out short term and long term goals is a huge step in the right direction, and for those short term goals, you can start setting up plans to meet them.

For example, I wasn't sure if I wanted to go to grad school or look for work, but my goal was to get to Germany in the near future. I realized that gaining a degree there would be the best first step for not only getting me into the country, but also creating a stepping stone for my goal of getting a job overseas.

In short, do some self-reflection and start writing out where you want to be, and how you could feasibly get there!
