The objective is to single out the career that matches your personality and life goals. To Ajit, an ideal career path must be appealing both to your personality and life goals. He finds it more fulfilling to wake up every morning to attend to what you love than just doing any kind of job.
Ajit also values the importance of doing a thorough background check on the particular field of interest as the next thing. He says that it's good to also look at the industry's viability, as well as if it is in alignment with your personal interests and your own Dharma or purpose. You can do this by engaging experts in the field while still counter-checking facts for accurate findings. He believes that no one wants to end up in a stale industry that may limit their overall potential.
More significantly, Ajit’s advice is to draft a career strategy or action plan to guide you. To him, every career path has its challenges, especially in the beginning, and you need to be ready to face and overcome the obstacles to success.
