What should I do with my life?

| Books

"When considering a life change, we let our fears govern our decisions. Rather than challenging the validity of those fears, we accept the boundaries set by those fears, and end up confining our search to a narrow range of possibilities, like the guy looking for his car keys under the streetlight because he's afraid of the dark." -- Po Bronson.

The sagging economy is getting worse and worse, forcing many people to turn inward and re-evaluate their careers. One begins to wonder what it is all worth and what is the best route to take after one has supposedly accomplished everything (or nothing).

The book What should I do with my life? is an attempt to chronicle the quest to the answer of the most important question there is. If you have Real Audio installed, you can listen to the Morning Edition Audio from the NPR homepage.

The most common misconceptions turn out to be that:

  1. money is the shortest route to freedom.
  2. we can think (or analyze) our way to an answer of where we belong.
  3. we are autonomous from the environment that surrounds us.
  4. our biggest obstacles are external, rather than internal.
