Do you think you made the right decision in your career?

When I was still in college, all I think about was which course will offee me a good paying job after I graduated. That time computer programmers was really indemand so I decided to take that path and go along with it. I love computers, don't get me wrong but do I enjoy being infront of it more than 8 hours? Heck no! So, I decided to take a different direction and right after college I applied for different jobs that are not really related to computers. If I can turn back the hands of time I would have taken a different course...probably related to medicine or arts. What about you?

My friend, you brought my childhood day to life. I was thinking so hard to become a lawyer because apart from mbeing highly paid and a high class work in the society, I wanted to be the first from my tribe. This desire drove me to study so hard. And when it came to make the decision some of best friends discourage, telling me to go with to collge where we spend 2 years of training and make money quickly. Why going to uni and spend 5 yrs? They argued and I seemed to believe them. Now I look back and regretted that day. I hated all my friends. The lawyers in their first yr of work earn the equivalent of our 5 yrs service so at last it pays off. I am trying to make up for it and studying law, but age is catching up with me.

I believe i have made the right decision in my career. I have graduated and earned my license in medical technology and where did i end up? I ended up in the insurance industry. In time, i realized that i have not been really happy with hospital life. I felt happier in the office atmosphere.
