Top 5 Career Regrets
August 9, 2016
He is a fool who leaves things close at hand to follow what is out of reach.

"What do you regret most about your career?" asked Daniel Gulati in his Harvard Business Review (December 14, 2012) article "The Top Five Career Regrets."  His research identified these most common regrets:

  1. I wish I hadn't taken the job for money.
  2. I wish I had quit earlier.
  3. I wish I had the confidence to start my own business.
  4. I wish I had used my time at school more productively.
  5. I wish I had acted on my career hunches.

Learning From the Bumps in the Road

As you read about the bumps the authors have encountered throughout their careers, you will be encouraged and challenged to think more deeply and openly about your own practices and philosophies. You will gain a renewed sense of purpose as you help children reach their full potential. And, you will discover — as the authors did — that every bump in the road is an invitation to grow and opportunity to learn.
