We should stop making kids pick a career path in high school.

Who is actually doing what they said they were going to do in high school?

Instead, let’s take a page out of Seth Godin’s book and ask them this question.

“If you knew you were going to fail what would you do anyways?”

It’ll be a compass to point them in a clearer direction.

When we pick careers that early we put fences around ourselves.

We lock ourselves into a life of servitude with something we may not actually enjoy.

Instead, we need to let our kids roam free and explore a bit of the world.

Let them do things they enjoy and see what they accomplish.

There will be time for them to work.

If they do it right, the work they choose may not feel much like work after all.
