To be real good at something!

It’s been a continues conversation between me and Kosar these days that we have some decisions to make these years. We both are passing our thirtieth and there is not much time to continue the so-called “trial and error” method to find what job is the best for each of us.

I’ve been in various job positions since nine years ago when I started to work for the first time in my life.  I was an editor for Firooze for one and half a year; maybe the most pleasant job I’ve ever had. Then I was R&D manager for another company that used to work on social networks and internet-based medias. I’ve also worked as a researcher and you can guess the rest! There are a lot of them.

It’s not that I couldn’t do those jobs properly, but after a while, I always needed to change. And to be honest, it’s not only about my job. This is how I changed my studies so frequently. Art, literature, jurisprudence, religions studies, media and etc are the fields that I have spent my life in!

But it has to be stopped somewhere! I can’t keep going on like this, even if it’s so exciting not to stick to one path and taste many different flavors of life during the unknown time you got in this world.

To stop this changing, means that I finally have to choose.  It means that I need to let many things that I like go. It’s not easy and I clearly know that, but there is nothing else I can do.

By the way… I think this is one of the biggest challenges that I’ve ever been dealing with in my entire life. I think that I should accept the fact that it’s much better to be real good at something than to be just good or OK at many things! I agree with this Farsi proverb which says if you’re expert in everything, you’re expert in nothing!

So… the only and the last question that I need to answer is: “What can I be real good at?” Not an easy question. I know!
