I live mostly by following my heart. I have change my interest(s) number of time and this tendency may not end in the near future. As somebody once told me, it is okay to change interest as long that I am happy. Does it mean I have no ambition? The thing is I do not think ambition is the right notion. What important is to do things right. Since I want to be in the academia, I want to have nice publications and ecosystem that can challenge me. On the other hand, I am very much a development scholar. It is important to be connected to change (or in most cases, policy makers). Sometimes balancing the two means having a messy schedule and interacting with people that can give me headache, which absorb my happiness.
Does it mean I have to detach my heart with the current interests and find something more fun?
