What you're interested in matters

No matter who you are or where you’re from, there will be a time in your life when you’re unsure about the path ahead. Maybe that time for you is now—or maybe you’re confident about the direction you’re headed. Either way, it’s important to stop and ask yourself: What’s the bigger picture, and what am I working toward?
