Putting the cart in front of the horse, euhm, kid

I had an interesting conversation this morning in the train to work.

Discussing the lack of guidance about future avenues school choices taken now imply, I had a flashback. I remember one of my first days at University. We walked into an economics lesson, and the professor started to tell us why economics was so relevant.

I can’t help but think it must have been a shock to those who suddenly realized they made an error, that they really did not care for the whole economics thing that much … But were stuck for the remainder of that year.

Perhaps we need to rethink guidance counseling in Belgium.
