Best for When your job feels like a road to nowhere.

Vibe The COO of Face­book and au­thor of Lean In is a dab hand at in­spi­ra­tional com­mence­ment speeches (you’ll need tis­sues for her 2016 talk at the Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia after her hus­band’s death). In this one, she dis­misses the idea of ca­reer plans. “If I had mapped out my ca­reer when I was sit­ting where you are, I would have missed my ca­reer,” she says.

Post-it-note quote “Your ca­reer and your life will have starts and stops and zigs and zags. Don’t stress out about the white space – the path you can’t draw – be­cause therein lies both the sur­prises and the op­por­tu­ni­ties.”

Skip to 5mins 20secs – it’s here that she re­ally en­cour­ages you to em­brace a var­ied ca­reer.
