Many people slip into their quarter life crisis upon graduating from college. When you are in school, everything is laid out for you. All you have to do is follow the rules and you will succeed. Some people might do better than others in terms of grades, etc. But in the end, all you can do is graduate. You pick a major and then you go. There really aren’t many places where you can go wrong or mess up. At least not, when you are trying.
Well, things are different when you graduate. There are many different paths to take. Many places to mess up. And most of all, there are many choices to make.
Here are some choices that I am struggling with. Some might sound funny to you, but that just means that you aren’t undergoing your quarter life crisis.
1. How much money should I spend and how much should I save?
2. How much of my savings should be short-term and how much goes to retirement?
3. Should I buy a car?
4. Should I be pursuing a career at this point? Or should I travel?
5. What are my passions? What are hobbies that I like to pursue?
This is just a brief example. There are many more. And I will tell you about all of them in the next month.
