I have found that at the most pivotal times in my career, there were two dominant paths laid in front of me. In hindsight, it is easy to see the correct path, but in the moment it is tough. One path had someone telling me that my talents would be used and my abilities developed further. The other path had someone telling me I had too much skill for that path and I needed to go a different direction. I have taken both many times in my career and both have led to immense happiness and enabled me to interact with and learn from amazing Airmen. Is one path better than the other?
