Career anxiety

Even Asian snacks are pushing you harder.
A friend pointed me to this HBR blog post on career anxiety recently, it's a good read if you're reflecting on your achievements from the year and don't feel like you've done 'enough' (don't we all feel this way sometimes?).  While I love my job, I definitely have my days when I wonder if I've made the right choices, and as they point out the proliferation of social networks isn't helping either.  Their three ways to overcome this anxiety is nothing new, but like so many pieces of wisdom they are a challenge to practice:

1. De-emphasise prestige and compensation.

2. Start experimenting.

3. Spend time defining your passions.

These work in any order.
