Should I reject a job offer from Apple to go traveling the world?

Should I reject a job offer from Apple to go traveling the world?

It depends.

The child in me says :

  • Choose adventure . You (I presume if you’re considering travelling) have no children, mortgage or huge commitments - so when can you see the world again?

The responsible adult in me says:

  • Apple is an amazing company and who knows if you’ll get this opportunity again. You must decide how important a career with Apple is Vs 5 months of travelling

The old man in me says:

  • In the years to come when you talk to your children, grandchildren and those who would listen - what will you talk of? Your days at Apple, or spear fishing in Peru, swimming with dolphins in New Zealand, and seeing the world?

The realist in me says:

  • In the end, no matter what you choose - everything will still be ok anyway. Living with regret is not something we are biologically designed to do - it doesn’t last - we move on - much like memories of pain.

So what do you do?

  • Go with your gut.
