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