In considering the “best” college major, or trying to figure out what college major will nail one an “awesome” job, the student is on a road to disappointment. The parent, who is asked to help the child in choosing a major in college, is not doing the child a favor. A lot of thought, effort, and money are spent on the huge college decision, and yet the student is destined for failure before starting school. Too often, the student is not asked the right questions and, in turn, does not give honest answers to some momentous college decisions. Thus, an important life choice begins on the wrong track, and it is difficult to hop on the correct train as the choice builds up steam.

Maybe Van Morrison knows something that the rest of us are only now just waking up to. I believe the collectively wiser we become, the more we realize that all this stuff that we’ve been desperate to acquire, and all this complication that we invite in the name of “having a life…” doesn’t even come close to what we really need. And what we really need is peace, purpose, connection and communion with other human beings.

When I think back to my childhood years and spending time with my grandparents, I find myself charmed by the wholesomeness of their stories. It’s a quality of life that feels so elusive in this day and age. How many of us can recall being captivated by simple but magical tales of fishing trips and card games? Humble block parties and home cooked Sunday dinners and chaotic but happy summer outings in the country?
This is obviously a short list, but it gives you an idea of the tradeoff between money and time. Which combination you want is up to you but choose carefully. It is after all a career choice.
