I have three sons, two of which are college age-ish (one if college, one on his way). They can do anything right now! If they wanted, they could fill a backpack and walk the earth. No one is going to stop them, in fact, many will congratulate them for taking this leap while they’re young.
In just a few years, people won’t say that. They’ll tell them it’s crazy and you’re going to hurt your career, etc.
I’m 45 years old. I have a feeling that I’m getting to an age where I no longer can make a change in my career path.
Before you start commenting with things like, “Tim, age is a state of mind”, or “You can do anything you want”, or “Follow you passion”. Stop it. I’m a grown ass man. I like to think I’m an adult, although my wife and kids question that frequently. I have adult obligations – mortgage, college tuition, kids to raise, health insurance. I can’t just go off and polish rocks.
