Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    Grew up in a musical family, so he always associated music with leisure; assumed he couldn't make a career out of it.

  • 2.

    Throughout most of his schooling, he thought he had his path figured out.

  • 3.

    Got his bachelor's degree in religion, then went to do a master's degree in divinity, planned to do a doctorate in philosophy of religion.

  • 4.

    When he entered his master's program, a counselor sat him down and asked about his career goals.

  • 5.

    Keith told him he planned to graduate, then teach philosophy, but admitted that he wasn't feeling totally passionate about it.

  • 6.

    Counselor told him the job market for philosophers wasn't great, so if he had any other passions, he should drop out and follow them.

  • 7.

    Says that's the best advice he ever got; started getting his "dropped class" slips the very next day.

  • 8.

    Admits that "follow your dreams" is hard advice to give, but really believes that you should take some chances while you're young.
