Part of what you’re paying for in business school is a time out to really think, “What do I care about?” Just for the sake of your happiness and because jobs do get old, you need to be motivated and passionate about it to be stellar at what you do and advance. You have to be passionate about it to really ask yourself what matters to you while you’re here. Test it, test it again, make sure it is, and give that direction to your career. I think you will be more successful and happy if you pursue the career that follows your interests.

Also, don’t be afraid of failing. CBS Matters has allowed people to reach out to others that they never thought they would. It’s opened channels of communication for ethics and values that normally would not be touched. So be risky, live a little. If you fail, you’ll wake up tomorrow and move on.
