    Hey, so just a question.

    I'm pretty new to the world - well I guess what people call the "adult" world. Still in college and more or less a dependent. In any case, its taken quite some time to accept that there are a million things possible but you just dont have the time for.

    Generally speaking, I've heard a lot of people say you should just set yourself on one track and go on from there. I'm not the type of guy that's suitable for one set long term plan but there's a lot of books that suggests that every person should have them.

    What are your thoughts and/or experience on this?

    Figure out what you want.

    Realize the path to getting what you want is through the connections you make with other people.

    Realize helping those people achieve what they need is the path to getting what you want.

    If you are neurotic like I am... You can bounce back and fourth between careers and be smart enough to make them pay the bills...And have tons of free time to do the things you love..!

    Multitasking careers will be the way of the future... Worldwide economies are unstable…A secondary or even a third career is always helpful.
    Know this... if you are not good at multitasking…Stick to a solid career!
    Good luck V!

    Diversity is the key to opportunity. You don't want to pin yourself into a hole, so select area that have commonality that can be diverse. For instance a major in accounting only lands you one type of job. While a major in mass communications with a minor in computer science (or double major with a third minor) could open up a huge world of opportunity to you.
