Change is inevitable, but progress is not. At the moment, it escapes me who originally said that, but it is absolutely true. In every aspect of our lives, not only careers — relationships and personal endeavors, as well. Oftentimes, individuals pursue a new “opportunity,” such as a new job position, merely for its novelty or the title, rather than the job itself. In reality, they end up in the exact predicament that you are cautioning against! A bit paradoxical.

Couldn’t agree more with the sentiments you express — it is so important to know what you want, rather than what the company, or someone else, wants of you.

Great article! :)
