I just recently went through a similar exercise as I am looking at a possible change in my career. I found a values exercise helpful to guide my decision. The exercise helps people truly see what is important to them. With your values in hand/on screen you can look at your degree/elective options and see what aligns best.

There are physical cards (type "value cards" in a browser) or websites (type "online values exercise" in a browser)

Assuming all is equally important you first start by getting your station ready. By that I mean creating an area which will mentally keep you focused. Have your coffee, a good night's rest, and motivation. Then start calculating each tasks time frame. Which will take less or more time. People try to start on tasks that take a longer time to execute and blow off the ones that are faster to take care of. That is wrong. Finish the short tasks first to start checking off your list. The more checks their are, the more accomplished you will feel which will allow you to stay determined to continue. Now if a longterm task can be started such as setting a meeting for the future, then of course do that right away. In my line of work I will start a chicken stock right away since it takes 6 hours to simmer. Right after starting it, then I start prepping veggies and other small tasks. But my line of work doesn't always match what you are going through. Saving time is awesome. But thinking about time is what stresses people out. So don't rush. Keep at a steady pace and do the work. But don't feel like you are going to be late.

Personally, I would start by making a list of your interests in order of what you find most interesting. From this list, I would research which interests are most likely to translate into a promising and rewarding career path. Then make your decision based of your interest and which career field is marketable and has hiring potential in the long term. This doesn't mean you need to limit yourself to one particular interest. You can have hobbies that you do outside of your normal working hours.

Mary’s Answer

When you say criteria do you mean a career path or personal goals ??without knowing that it’s hard to give you any direction, but I would write down everything you want to do and then categorize it by education required, joining affirmative action types of groups, committees and volunteer work associated with your interest.
that’s a start if you can give me more information about what “criteria” means to you, I can try to help further.
Thank you comment icon Hi Mary, it's actually my personal goal. The criteria I meant is when I experienced information overload. When I decided to study a specific field or like a virtual course, for example. I wanted to do that course but at the same time, there is something better to the point my lists keeps pilling up. It's hard to prioritize if all are important. Shaina T.

In addition to Mary's response, I would encourage you to think about your strengths and your interests. When you're defining criteria for yourself, whether for a job search or to build skills, you will grow more quickly when aligning where you have natural talents.
Thank you comment icon Thank you so much, Ms. Anderson. Although it is not the answer I'm looking for nevertheless, I'm grateful for your response. Shaina T.
