Taking long term decisions, the right approach.

What is the right approach? What kind of decisions am I talking about? Any decision that is associated with a long term goal, has the potential to affect your life or others’.

Let’s dive into the approach, first let’s talk about the reason this thought came to my mind, during an Uber ride, we were discussing a career decision my Uber driver made, and I heard him saying, there won’t be a saturation for next 15-20 years, and the switch in my head clicked! Saturation? Really, that’s how you’re making a long term decision? Something that might affect the rest of your life, you’re just looking at the next 15-20 years?  Now, I’m not a certified career counsellor, but he mentioned making an investment in this stream of study, so it’ll keep him ahead of the curve in the said field for the next 15-20 years, that just ticked me off, of-course I didn’t get mad or anything, but I did shake my head in disappointment hearing the two words ‘investment’ and ‘saturation’ in one sentence.

What I said to him; If you’re looking at something as an investment as opposed to an interest, don’t go by how long the saturation will be from today, go by whether it’s simple and evolving enough to last forever.

Now this approach, you can apply to anything, any additional skill you decide on pursuing, any formal education in a certain field, anything you’re investing your resources in. Cheers!
