I like to advise students that of the three requirements for happiness - something to look forward to, someone to be with, and something you like to do - I can help them with the "like to do" choices based on experience. Since college I have been a highway department engineer, a high school coach and commandant of cadets, an army artillery officer, a banker, a research director, a dean, a teacher, and a writer. Students need to know that it is okay to change majors or change careers until they find what they most like to do.
