The Best Career Advice I've Gotten

"Choose something that makes time go away"

When I was in college, I was struggling to decide what direction I wanted to take my career in. I knew I wanted something in the communications and marketing space, but as to which avenue to take I had no idea.

I attended a virtual learning webinar from the ad agency Barkley, and a brand leader said I should choose something that makes time go away, meaning when you do it, you don't realize that time is going by. Pick something you could do for hours and hours and have it feel like only minutes have gone by.

That's how I got into writing, and I've really been enjoying it! So, if you're struggling to choose a career path or considering a career change, I think this advice could be quite helpful :)
