Discussion on: What Are Your Career Goals?

I always feel a bit nervous saying this but... I've never made plans. I was always the kid at school that when I was asked "What do you want to be when you're older?" I had no answer. My direction has always been dictated by what I enjoy or how I can be of help to other people, which is why my CV reads: Software Dev, Digital Marketing, BMX Coach and Commentator! Loving Maths, Computers and helping people has kind of driven me to that point. And the variety keeps it interesting. If I had one piece of advice, I'd say always try things out despite any preconceived ideas you have about that thing. You might surprise yourself! :)

I've felt that way a lot in my life. I feel like I'm college it was a lot easier to have a plan, but out in the real world it gets a lot less directed and a lot more... Limitless. Which I think makes it harder to figure out what to do. Thanks for sharing!
