Best Career Advice for freshers ( people in their 20s)

If you're young and your career is in its early days, you've likely been advised to plenty of career formula.

But if "follow your passion," "give 110%," and "be true to yourself" just aren't cutting it for you anymore, perhaps advice like, "don't work too hard" and "relax" are more up your pathway.

Following are some best conventional advice for people in their 20s:

 

Make your own path.

If the world puts you on a road you do not like, if you look ahead and do not want that destination which is being offered and you look behind and you do not want to return to you place of departure, step off the road. Build yourself a new path.'"

Never look back in regret -- move on to the next thing.

It is wise not to waste time dwelling on failures, rather put that energy into another project.  

Say yes to more things.

Find a way to say yes to things. Say yes to invitations to a new country, say yes to meet new friends, say yes to learn something new. Yes is how you get your first job, and your next job, and your spouse, and even your kids.

With success comes unhelpful criticism -- ignore it.

"A wise teacher from India shared this insight: The elephant keeps walking as the dogs keep barking,"

The sad fact is that we all have to navigate our way around the dogs in our career: external critics, competitors, horrible bosses, or colleagues who undermine. It is better you to get prepared for the yapping to increase along with your success.

Keep things simple.

Pick the things that suit your model, a model that really is predictive and that's going to continue to work over a long-term period. And so your  ability to boil things down, to just work on the things that really count.

Don’t work too hard.

We operate under a collective delusion that burning out is the necessary price for achieving success. However, your performance will actually improve if you can commit to not only working hard but also unplugging, recharging, and renewing yourself."

Have an experimental attitude.

Some people will know exactly what they want to do at a very young age, but the odds are low. People in their early- to mid-20s are very earnest. They're very serious, and they want to feel like they've accomplished a lot at a very young age rather than just trying to figure stuff out. So I try to push them toward a more experimental attitude.

Relax.

Almost nothing you're worried about today will define your tomorrow.  Down the road, don't be afraid to take a pay cut to follow your passion.
