I have many friends who are engineers. They have been asked, on occasion, to tweak their designs to exceed the limits physics has imposed. Sometimes they can innovate and stretch the capabilities of their devices, but ultimately the laws of physics will prevail.
The Laws of Physics seems to apply to human abilities. The “normal curve” postulates that we reside somewhere from low to high in the myriad of abilities we have. It shows few on each end and a bulge in the middle. If you look at where you are on the curve in each of your abilities, you will begin to see your strengths and weaknesses.
All successful people love what they do, so it is imperative for you to figure out what you love.
If you are a gifted athlete, you need to decide whether or not you are good enough and enjoy your sport enough to go for a career in it. The same is true if you are a gifted musician or singer or actor or cartoonist or teacher or doctor or nurse.
If you are curious about engineering or business as I was, you will find your passion in manufacturing things in the private sector.
If you don’t know what you would like to do, take the Strong Campbell Interest Test or the Kuder Occupational Interest Survey at your school or on line.
The Laws of Human Behavior are as sturdy and complex as the Laws of Physics or the Laws of Economics and they need to be used in determining your vocation.
