Creating your career

Most people never make a conscious decision about their careers and end up at a certain place, due to external factors and present opportunities. Their career path wasn't carved out or planned.

Creating your career is something that most people don't think of at an early stage when they are not sure about themselves and the world around them.

You Decide who you become

Here are Five Steps that can create your career:

1. Analyzing yourself.

2. Identify your industry

3. Improve your basic, universal skills

4. Start from Scratch

5. Continuous Self-Development

The place to shine

Pursue a career at a place that fits your strengths and makes you shine.

Do what you love and you will see that even a hobby can turn into a career.

Your Universal Skills

Just knowing your job is not enough, you also need some universal skills like:

  • Leadership
  • Good writing ability
  • Personal effectiveness
  • Persuasion
Start from scratch

Be patient and start from the bottom; avoid going for quick fixes and unrealistic expectations, and keep learning as you go up the right way.

Self-Development for growth

Successful people keep learning and developing themselves. This way they are never stuck in a dead-end job, or in their own comfort zone.

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.

Identify an industry that fits your strength


This is a tough one. On one side, I believe that we should pursue a career we are passionate about. But on the other side, I think we should NOT do something we’re bad at.

So what should you do if you love something but suck at it? My opinion is to not pursue a career in that field. Treat it like a hobby instead. A lot of people love to make music, but they are not good enough to earn a living. But does that mean you should stop making music? Hell no! Go and jam with your friends — in your spare time.

  • The bottom line is this: Only pursue a career that fits your strengths.

I know this is somewhat of a limited view. Some people even call it pessimistic. But I see it as realism.
