A challenging talk by Larry Smith which builds on Steve Job’s Stanford speech featured here a few weeks ago.
He postulates that we will fail at having a great career because of all the reasons and excuses that we are going to give ourselves. For me, my issue is that I don’t really know what my passion is, and I’m not sure if pursuing it will feed the family, so I take the safe option and carry on with my life as it is. How else do people in the same circumstances as me choose? If there are examples, I would like to learn from and see how to go about doing it in a risk free way.
