RADIO PROGRAM NO. 261 - Choosing a Career—Gamble or Guidance

Questioner: Choosing a career is an apt question since all my life people have been asking me, "What are you going to do when you grow up?" And now that I've reached college the question has quite a bite. Wouldn't you say that the choice of career is pretty much a matter of luck or chance?

Speaker: It seems to be that to many people, but let me ask you a question. Would you regard building a bridge or writing a book or launching a rocket—the results of choosing a career—a matter of luck or chance?

Questioner: Certainly not.
