Why ‘Pick a practical college education’ is the worst advice a young adult can get

When We’re Not Cautious We End Up Polluting Our Children’s Minds With Crap

Can a career choice ruin your life?

Sure it can. If you have the wrong mindset!

In other words, if you think that this mistake (a wrong career choice in your youth) can spoil your life, it will.

I guess we all have a tendency to think that way, because, in our youth, we all heard from all sorts of well-meaning adults how freaking important it is to pick the right career in our late teenage years / early 20s (because we will do it for the next 40 years), and why it will be impossible (practically speaking) to change that later.

If, on the other hand, you think that this mistake (a wrong career choice in your youth) cannot spoil your life, it won’t. And those are the few lucky people who weren’t fed this ‘one life one career’ story, or who realized how broken this thinking actually is, and who refused to buy into this bullshit story.
