Everyone has a plan, a guide, a path, an objective, a career destination in mind for you.
Maybe it works for you now so you go along with it.
Maybe it sounds really promising with lots of hope – you complete X and you get Y – so you go along with it.
Maybe it gets you a number of short term goals – so you go along with it.
But if you’re always “going along with someone else’s plan”, you’re never creating your own.
You’re never finding your own path.
You’re never leading yourself.
Maybe it’s time to start leading you, and let others follow where they need to.
