Career planning = Career limiting

Listen all high fliers, check out this career planning advice from Marc Andreessen –

The world is an incredibly complex place and everything is changing all the time. You can’t plan your career because you have no idea what’s going to happen in the future. You have no idea what industries you’ll enter, what companies you’ll work for, what roles you’ll have, where you’ll live, or what you will ultimately contribute to the world. You’ll change, industries will change, the world will change, and you can’t possibly predict any of it.

Trying to plan your career is an exercise in futility that will only serve to frustrate you, and to blind you to the really significant opportunities that life will throw your way.

Career planning = career limiting.

Nothing could be more closer to the truth.

  1. It’s not that simplistic actually…

    Planning in non-deterministic situations is a key human strength…

    Also, depends upon how concrete you are trying to be…a plan that gives you enough opportinities and enough focus at the same time would be essential…

  2. Just read the post…

    It’s more about taking risks than not planning…excellent article…!!!

    Sorry about out of context comment… :)
