Everyone makes mistakes but dwelling in regret is an even bigger one as you will never have the chance to make amends.

In our past we have made decisions that have helped us tremendously in our careers and have never looked back. Likewise we have also made unfortunate decisions that have had adverse effects on our lives.

.

Here to read comments and lies.


As for me the decisions were

1. To know several skills in and out of my field. Adding to your skill set always help your career


2. To give myself an ultimatum of three years to work in my field and after that go for what I truly want to do and that which I have passion and talent for.


3. To always save money, so I can never be dependent on a job.

The list is endless but so far I haven't made a bad decision yet. and I hope the above decisions affects my career positively.

Actually I didn't, I just had no choice so I decided to give it a trial by giving all I have and it paid off

Leaving Nigeria was the best decision I was fortunate to make career-wise. If I had remained, I would still have been stuck in a dead-end medical rep job just like most of my colleagues are. I was held to ransom by Doctors who persistently demanded bribes from medical reps in order to prescribe their products, even when the patient clearly need this product. Horrible practice with no dignity.

Spot on..what bedevils most people is a clear goal. Many lack focus and hence the go where the wind blows them, some may get luck while the others...well undecided

Make: Knowing early I needed to make a balance between what I love doing, what makes me relevant, and what brings food to the table. Nowadays, my reminiscing time makes me smile.

Mar: Trusting an unscrupulous colleague that almost put an end to my career at an early stage. I learned my lesson the hard way.

If you study any IT related course in school and after graduation you go into teaching because you couldn't get a job on time you're making a big mistake!.
Instead of teaching, go and get trained in computer programming, web design, digital marketing, graphics design etc and become a professional of your own. Teaching will consume all your time and keep you at the lowest level of the tech industry by not being able to upgrade your knowledge in important areas of IT. This was my mistake but thank God I pulled out of teaching before it was too late. I'm into graphics design, web and software development at the moment and I'm happy with my life.
