Moments of Moment

Adolph Hitler aspired to be an artist but was rejected by Vienna's Academy of Art, purportedly by a Jew.  If Hitler had been admitted, just perhaps the Holocaust might not have occurred.

Early Memories

Our brain is a filter. Generally, we remember what's important, for example, some memories that have survived the decades.

My clients have found that strong early memories have implications for what they might do today: careerwise and personally, plus psychological issues they may still have to deal with.

Ten Underrated Jobs

A couple days ago, I described downsides of nine popular careers.  A commenter on that article asked if I might describe some underrated jobs' upsides. Okay.

An objection to many of the following jobs is that they pay poorly.

The ten jobs I describe in my article today aren't for everyone but, especially if you need a career win, a life win after some setbacks, these not-unduly-competitive jobs may be worth a look.

Nine Professions' Downsides: Physician, clinical psychologist, manager, lawyer, teacher, social worker, accountant, career counselor, librarian

Most reviews of careers have a positive bias. That's largely because most of the reviewers are in those careers. Those unhappy with it have left before being asked to describe it in an interview.  Also, cognitive dissonance causes a positive bias: People have devoted years to the career, so it's hard to acknowledge that it has been a poor investment of time and money.

To provide a bit of counterbalance, in my article today, I offer downsides of nine popular careers.
