We often define ourselves by what job we do.
I’m an accountant. I’m a teacher. I work in finance.
But maybe we’re thinking about our careers in the wrong parameters.
Instead of finding a job, we should be trying to find a way to feel excited and fulfilled every day.
If you wake up with dread, you feel like you’re in a suit that’s too small, or you’re uninspired, you’re probably not in the right place.
So how do we figure out what we’re meant to do?
It’s not easy.
But it’s worth trying to figure out.
