Thank you, main struggle is FOBO in the context of career. I have a problem with FOBO in different contexts too, but not as much because as you pointed out career choice has a huge impact. I might look for career consultation for sure. 80000 hours career advice services is overwhelmed right now AFAIK so I might need to look somewhere else.

PS: Given you are web developer what's your opinion on having an impact as web developer?

Depends on a lot on job you have, but I work for dev house so impact I have depends on project I am assigned to. Many times it means low impact CRUD apps, work which can be either done by anyone or work on a products which fill really likely fail and code and your work will be thrown away with it. Solutions I could think up is:

1. Try to work on your own product(where you at least get upside from the risk) which is obviously though.

2. Work on open source projects although this takes a lot my limited free time which I like to spend other interests.

3. Find a diff company with more impactful role, which I am actively looking for.
