Typically, the term “adventurous” is not one of the first words I hear used to describe a career. In fact, it’s not even in the top 100. For people like Felix Baumgartner or Jeb Corliss, sure; but for the rest of us (who aren’t free falling to Earth at 843 miles per hour from a helium balloon dangling in the stratosphere or base jumping in a wingsuit through trees and mountains), definitely not.
Adventurous, yes. What I want my career to model? Not exactly.
