Q: Career plans are for people who do not know what they want. I know already that I want a high-paying job. So why should I bother thinking about career planning?
A: Money is just one motivation for work. You need to consider many other factors as well. Career planning considers your personal values, goals, and interests, the basics for any career decision. Since you will probably spend the majority of your life working, consider the old adage: “Choose a career you love, and the money will follow.”
