Well, this looks vaguely familiar…
I used to feel this way. 2 years out of school, and I finally realized that the only two that matter are the ones on the left.
“Things that I want to do with my life” - the single most important factor. If you want it, you’re more likely to feel satisfied and happy.
“Things that I’m good at” - let this guide you through the things that interest you. If you can find a way to channel what you’re good at with things that make you happy, you are more likely to find success.
“Things that my parents want me to do” - Picking what you want to do with an enormous chunk of your time should be made by you - not parents or ANYONE ELSE.
“Things that are considered realistic occupations” - There is no such thing as a “realistic” occupation. Don’t settle for something boring to you because it seems easy or traditional or *what you’re supposed to do*. Occupations are actually less rigid than they sometimes seem.
