I mashed up my Interests to direct me down my own road. Take the Roadmap quiz for yourself!
Being Physically Acive
Environment & Nature
My manifesto is to learn new things, help out others, and to make a difference. I want to get on the way to be someone who can help someone else. Using this I decided to move away from the noises idea of who I am and move to something in phycology, possible a psychiatrist, to be able to help other people. Over all I want to do something that I will be able to help others while not regretting my choices throughout my life.
My leader teaches engineering at a local community college.
What type of route did this leader take?
"It was straightforward."
"It took a while to figure out."
"I tried everything."
Leader's Work Life
An average day of my leaders work is going to the school, teaching his classes that he has for that day, and then working at his office.
My leader did not have any noise. He did not know what he wanted to do, but he did not receive any doubt from himself and others.
Advice from my Leader
Some advise that my leader gave me during one of my interviews is to just try things on your own. He said that doing things yourself helps build up your own knowledge and makes it easier to learn anything.
Something important that I learned I learned from making my cold call is that you have to go in with confidence. Do not be afraid of messing up because, and I mean this in the best way possible, you are someone he or she does not know. They are going to be the same to you, you do not know them so do not be afraid as you never know when you will receive a yes.
Before and After
Before my Leader interview I thought that it would be impossible to find something that I would enjoy, but now I realize that when you love and enjoy something you will simply fall into it without much thought.
