Most of the job and career problems stem from the fact that we are so terrible at picking up. In the beginning, we think that we are picking up the right career and the right job, which we start disliking in a while.  Most of the people don’t succeed in choosing their right job (also career) at the first try, and you should not expect  to be an exception.
