My son was suffering over typical inane rules that govern our education system. “You have to follow the rules of people who have authority over you.” I explained.
I was definitely not an unquestioning rule follower when I was his age. I would ask “why” if I thought a rule was unfair. I carried this trait into my career as an attorney. While I was respectful, I would suggest other ways that a project could be carried out besides “standard procedure.”
I fully realize that most clients who come to Career Counseling Connecticut cannot simply quit their jobs and start a business. But if you have a business in you, then you should start planning. And, that’s where we can help. Some of our biggest successes have been helping new Connecticut businesses get off the ground.
When I was creating my own career path, I realized that autonomy was very important to me. Having to follow someone’s arbitrary rules chafed at me more than it seemed others.
If you have a similar blessing/curse, then you should seriously consider starting a business. You, then, can create your own arbitrary rules!
