The Quarter-Life Crisis

A friend reached out to me needing advice on what he described as a quarter-life crisis.

He graduated from college a few years ago with a degree in computer science only to realize — after a few years working in the industry — it wasn’t for him.

He liked it, but didn’t love it.

He asked if I have ever had a quarter-life crisis. I laughed.


I graduated with a degree in graphic design and quickly found a job as a marketing designer at an engineering company. I made it about six months before realizing laying out magazines and posters just wasn’t for me.

I made the switch into product/UX design soon after. Eight-ish years later and I still question if the world of design is right for me.

I like it, but I don’t love it, at least not anymore.

My current thesis (and what I told my friend): My professional career will likely be made of many jumps and pivots. Doing one kind of job for the next thirty years might be for some, but definitely not for me. And that’s okay.

My friend is currently guest starring as a product manager. He’s loving it.
