In today’s world where career decisions are made on the basis of earning potential of the job, above everything else; which career to choose/shift also becomes a taxing decision.
Sam Altman, Chairman of Y Combinator and Founder of OpenAI has a simple solution to this dilemma.
Taking cue from Jeff Bezos’s “Risk Minimisation Framework”, Sam further elongates it by adding “Impact Maximisation”.
The ideal career is the one where an individual can make maximum impact (for both self and towards society) and also does not regret her decision in the long term as well.
“The framework I’ve found most useful for helping people think through career decisions is to consider both impact maximization and regret minimization—a decision that scores well on both is likely to be a good one.”
