Question of the Day, November 16, 2011 Pick same career again?

If you could go back in time, would you pick the same career or a different one? Why?
Many of you may have had more than one career, realizing this, answer as best you can.

I’ve never had a career.
I’ve just done what I liked doing.

I liked fishing, did that for 17 years.

Started playing with computers as a hobby, then started a software company, and been doing that for 25 years.

Along the way done lots of things that have interested me, in terms of community involvement, up to 30 committees at a time, and lots of service – currently president of the local Lions Club.

All the while, training myself to be more effective at understanding the viewpoints of others, and communicating what I see to others.
Not a dull journey, and hardly what one would call a career.

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor.
