This is your most important decision

80’000 Hours is a non-profit that helps people figure out how they can best use their career to help solve the world’s most pressing problems. In this new article, they offer a framework anyone can use to make career decisions. Four factors define your impact:

  • How effective the solutions you pursue are.
  • The amount of leverage you can apply to those solutions.
  • Your personal fit for the path
