The way we make many decisions is usually by making comparisons with others. Career decisions are no exception. We feel pressure when other people land that graduate job or get that promotion or even when they start their own business.
I came across a wonderful quote yesterday in Dr Kelly Wilson's address to the World ACT Conference.
It's from Tales of Hasidim by Martin Bubber.
Rabbi Zusya said, "In the coming world they will not ask me:
'Why were you not Moses?'
Instead, they will ask me:
'Why were you not Zusya?'"
