As I was going throught my hign school years more ideas on how I wanted to help the environment and us as humans kept coming to my mind. However, as time went by I found myself lock down with two many options and not being able which to choose. Yes, many people haved told me to worry about this kind of things in the future but I want to knkw a better way to balance my things out and focus on one thing rather than have this many choices I have in mind.

In addition to the advice already given, once you have identified some potential career paths, seek out some people who have those careers and talk to them to find out how they got there, what their job entails, what skills are needed, what the career prospects are (how easy/difficult is it to get a job in that field). As you narrow down your career options even more, you can consider shadowing people with those careers and volunteering or applying for internships in those fields.

And always keep in mind that once you choose a career path, you aren't necessarily bound to it for the rest of your life! You can always choose a career and then pivot to a similar (or even completely different) one later in your life. I started out as a doctor and pivoted to become a software engineer :)

I suggest that you think about what qualities you personally excel at, such as public speaking, giving advice to others or analytical skills. Then I would try to choose a career path that accentuates these skills.

Hi! I understand that it can be difficult to decide what career path to choose. Ultimately, I think it is important to pursue your passion. The last thing you would want to do is pursue a career and become unhappy. You would either be stuck in a career that you dislike, or you would have to change your career. Alongside that, I think it is important to try different things. You may have to create your own career that combines both of your interests. You also want to do your research and reach out to professionals in each of the feels because you may realize that you like one career more than the other based on work environment or day-to-day tasks. Remember that you can do anything that you devote your time and efforts to. Stay focused and motivated! Good luck!

You've been given some excellent advice already. One additional thought to consider is to gain insight into your true strengths and then look for opportunities to utilize those strengths in your education and career choices. My favorite assessment is StrengthsFinder. The resulting report will provide you with the strengths that you naturally possess. And it will provide insights into what opportunities may be potential options for you. This information may be very helpful in your decision-making process.

Kim recommends the following next steps:

  • Take the StrengthsFinder assessment and review the resulting report.
  • Identify potential areas for educational and career paths.
  • Retain the report for reference as your career evolves.
