Perfectionists: stay away from English teaching

There are some businesses you’ll get into in Asia as a teacher where the best you can hope for is a good one year and then you leave either because the environment is just so toxic or because you are going to get burned out or maybe you’ll just get sick of living in a rural area. Maybe it becomes too monotonous. Maybe there’s no room for growth. There are many reasons. It’s like any other job, sometimes you need a fresh start, so go west young man! 

Planning your life

But I will say that it’s also helpful to identify your career plan. Have mini goals and steps that will help you reach certain milestones. In life, a plan is always a good thing to have so you can kind of keep your eye on where you want to go and how you foresee your future. I’m not saying manifestation because I can’t really vouch for that, but it certainly helps to know what you’re getting into and having a clear sense of what your goal is. Kind of like planning a road trip but with more bathroom breaks.

These are all things for you to consider and ponder as you move forward in the world. And for those of you who are just graduating from college, you have my sympathies because I recognize how difficult that could be because you’re probably going from one area in life to a completely new area. Welcome to the real world, sadly it does not get easier, unless you are rich.
