Why Keeping Your Options Open Is Holding You Back

#72 — Freedom is not having lots of options—it's choosing between them.

You are free to choose.

Now think about that in the context of your research project and career. Are there any decisions you would approach differently? Is there anything you tend to avoid because you worry it will limit your options in the future?

You might worry that specializing in a specific technique or instrument makes you less widely employable. Or you might worry about the consequences of taking projects in the same institute for a long time compared to what you might achieve if you move from project to project and country to country.

In this episode of The Happy Scientist, explore why making decisions that keep the maximum number of options open to you doesn't necessarily mean they are the best decisions.
