Go With Door #2

There are two ways of looking at the world.

Behind Door #1 is everything that has been pre-built, pre-defined, and pre-established by others in the past. You are invited to fit in.

Most people fall into the trap of planning their career using Door #1. Why is this a trap?

Because it was built by someone else, not by you. It was built for someone else’s purposes, not for yours. It was built to meet past needs, not necessarily future opportunities.

It’s not always the best deal.

Behind Door #2 is a blank screen, waiting for you to project yourself upon it.

Your skills. Your direction. Your goals. The opportunities you see.

Door #1 is the default choice. Door #2 is for the courageous.

Go with Door #2.

One Response to Go With Door #2

  1. Joe Cascio says:

    Coincidentally, it always pays to choose the other door, according to a logical paradox known, fittingly, as the Monty Hall Problem. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monty_Hall_problem See also this YouTube explanation. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhlc7peGlGg Totally counter-intuitive but provably correct.
