Bad Advice — The Bits I Forgot

Don’t expect to be able to do all the neat things in a single job. Ain’t gonna happen, and even if you can, it’s a bad idea. Eggs in basket.

If your job folds, then all the things you enjoy and that keep your life interesting, and that keep you interesting, fold with it. Remember the stereotype male who, once he retires, has nothing to do? It’s even more insidious. If the job you love becomes the job you hate, then the things you loved doing there aren’t just gone, they’re contaminated.

You also can’t do them all at once. Sometimes, education or family takes priority. With a bit of attention, though, you can tweak things you already love (or want to try) into things that make you interesting and encourage you to learn.
