Time Can Be on Your Side

In mulling a career choice or change, consider a time frame (such as the two years it might take to deviate from your current path) as it pertains to your occupational life as a whole going forward rather than simply your current age. If for example, you’re 20, consider that a two-year detour represents a small fraction of your ultimate working life, rather than the fact that it is 10% of your present age.
