The two biggest mistakes that otherwise smart people make in choosing their careers:

1. They pursue something they excelled at in school but never truly enjoyed.

2. They follow a strong personal interest only to find that related jobs involve lots of work that holds little interest for them.

Avoid these two pitfalls by testing the waters first. Sit and observe others at work, take a stab at doing their work and interview veterans who can reflect honestly on their careers. Further mitigate your risk by identifying a handful of sub-interests that you’d like to satisfy at work, rather than inflating the importance of one dominant pursuit at the expense of everything else.
