    CAREER CHOICES - Follow your passion or follow your ability?
    (the topic was once discussed on SEPTEMBER 22, 2016)

    Making a career choice is more than just landing a job. It is a decision that has a huge impact on our lifestyle and the way we achieve our lifetime goals. But how can we decide on a career path when our academic performance suggests an option but we desire otherwise?
    Imagine you make it through four years of college and get your degree; you graduate and get a job in a related field. But years later, you realize it was actually a mistake. What you are doing is not what you actually want to do. You feel bad having to get up each day and go to a job you do not like.
    That scenario is not rare. For many people, it may take years or more to find out what they are good at, and sometimes, their skills and abilities may not equal their interests and passions. That is one reason why many college students change their major halfway through college, and many never do the jobs related to their majors after graduation.
    The fact is that you cannot be successful at something you are not interested in, but if you have no special skill in something you are passionate about, you can be discouraged; your passion can be drained, and it can be another dilemma.

    Title

    (01:59:08 AM 28/03/2014)

    Titles are the words that go in front of someone's name. In American English, the most common salutations are "Mr.", "Ms.", "Mrs.", and "Miss". There are a few others as well like "Dr." Here's an explanation of each of the common titles:

     

    How should I use titles like "Mr." and "Mrs."?

     

    Titles are the words that go in front of someone's name. In American English, the most common salutations are "Mr.", "Ms.", "Mrs.", and "Miss". There are a few others as well like "Dr." Here's an explanation of each of the common titles:

    • "Mr." (pronounced "mister") is used when you're addressing a man.
    • "Ms." (pronounced "miz") is for addressing a woman. It can be used for all women, so people often use this instead of "Mrs." or "Miss" in spoken English.
    • "Mrs." (pronounced "miziz") is for a married woman. When you're saying or writing someone's full name in a really formal situation, you should find out if they are married or not and use the correct salutation - "Mrs." or "Miss".
    • "Miss" (pronounced "miss") is for an unmarried woman. Use it with female children and teenagers.
    • Other titles include "Dr." (pronounced "doctor"), Professor, Judge, President (of a country, not a company), Governor, Officer, General, Nurse, and some other job titles).

    You normally use these titles with a person's last (family) name. Using a title with a person's first name sounds a little childish. That's OK if you're speaking with really small children. For example, preschool teachers ask their students to call them "Miss Jenny" or "Mister Jason".

    So when should you call someone by their title? Here are a few rules:

    • Students should call their teachers by their titles. For high school and below, use "Mr., "Ms.", etc. For university, use "Professor". As a sign of respect, some teachers will also call their students by their last names and titles.
    • If you work in a store, a restaurant, a bank, etc. it's polite to call the customer by their title and last name.
    • At formal events like political forums, graduation ceremonies, or in (legal) court, people often use a title plus a person's full name ("Mr. Aaron Knight", etc.)
    • In the workplace, people usually call each other by their first names, with no title. That's even true in written email communication, and even when you're speaking to someone from another company. Calling a person by their title seems formal and creates a distance between people.
    • Friends and family members almost never address each other with a title, except perhaps as a joke.
