A career these days is less a path and more a hop-step. The very brave will hit the road or start their own businesses anyway. Some crave security — if that’s you, try to find a secure job and stay in it till retirement.
But the great majority should regard your next unemployment as an opportunity to try something new: travel, get a job overseas, try a different career, start a business. If you discover that’s not you, seek employment again — but at least you’ll have experienced making your own way.
Travel has been my life and I’ve been fortunate to make a living from it. I’d probably be richer as a lawyer but I simply look at my experiences, from hitchhiking across Tibet when it first opened to motorcycling Alaska’s Dalton Highway across to the Arctic Sea – and I smile.
