There are a lot of factors to consider when making choices in your career.
What if it’s the wrong decision? What if something better comes along? What if I regret not taking this chance?
It can lead to what Patrick Reid, CEO of creative agency Imagination, calls “analysis paralysis.”
“Young people, particularly now, are very focused on getting things right and not making a mistake,” Patrick Reid told CNBC Make It. “Whilst that’s very admirable, I do think when you’re young, you really do have to take opportunities as, even if things don’t work out, often it leads to other opportunities.”
It’s something that Reid has experienced more than once over his career.
