Most of the time, we just fell into a trap that society laid down for everybody. Staying and thinking for a while and asking yourself what you want to do, would be a better choice. Why? Because when you get old probably in your 60s or 70s you don’t want to have any regrets. Regrets can be really painful than having a failure.
Being happy about the work that you do is going to be important. There is no point in not being happy and choosing the work that doesn’t make you feel good. Especially today, we people can take a lot of risks. The opportunities are more. Software products are making life much easier.
So, taking a decision based on long-term goals is better than choosing something which is in no relation to your long-term goal.
