What Should I Do With My Life?

Created by: Ashley Pinney, 2011-2012 Career Fellow

“Keep your eye on the big picture. By that I mean not everyone’s got it figured out just yet, but in the meantime you can build skills that you might be able to draw on when the time comes to make your contribution, X. Maybe you can’t define X but that’s no reason not to prepare for the day you do figure it out.”

This excerpt comes from What Should I Do With My Life: The True Story of People Who Answered the Ultimate Question by Po Bronson. Not only is this book interesting, it’s easy to read. There are a wide range of experiences and it’s easy to relate to the people in the book. Check it out!
