The Decision Crisis: Follow Your Interests And Passions

Everyone faces decisions and in many cases we fall into a decision crisis: a place where we are unable to make an important decision. In some cases these crisis can last a lifetime. The effects are often detrimental.

A good example of an area where decisions can be life changing is your career path.

What about the decision crisis that faces every student? Your decision making process for identifying the right career path is more important than many decisions you will have to make. Unfortunately this process often begins in the middle rather than the beginning. Simply put, many students and parents look at job markets, financial compensation, and job availability as the deciding factors on a career (major) path.

The First Step in the Decision Making Process

Before you consult the traditional counselors, career and interest surveys, and company representatives recruiting on campus consider the following:

1. Awareness: You will graduate to the workforce via corporate America or as an entrepreneur with a work life history that will span on average 40+ years.

2. Interest: The career path you pursue should be one that holds your interest. It is imperative that you identify all your interests. Make a detailed list of the things, activities, and rituals you enjoy. This should help to heighten your awareness about what direction to take.

3. Passion: After identifying your interests, which ones are your passions? Which activity, subject, or ritual do you just love? Make a list of these “special” interests and consider them your detailed list moving forward.

Discovering the correct career path (major) should start with the awareness that you will be spending the majority of your waking hours working. With this awareness you can then understand how important it is to find a career that you have interest and passion for in abundance.

This example can be applied to most any important decision facing individuals today. Remember to recognize your interest and passion in the decision you are about to make.
