Which fields do you think will be most in demand in the future? What if you have to declare a college major next year? Do your parents want you to be a doctor or lawyer, but you have no interest.
Parents want their kids to be trophies as they proudly boast, “he’s a doctor, she’s a lawyer — they’re both dentists!” If they have three kids and one in each, that’s like parent nirvana. If I told you that the most sought-after job in the future is going to be sitting like a zombie in an autonomous driving car to oversee it from hitting NYC pedestrians, would you pursue it? Besides, do you know who is right about predicting the future? No one. And simply saying “do what you love” is only part of the equation. You need to do what you love and what you are also great at — or can become great at. I can’t answer what that is for you.
