Finding the best career path and being satisfied with the choice is one of the important aspects of modern-day life. There are millions of articles on the web and a lot of research has been done on the issue. Still, there is not a universal secret to having a fulfilling career. Here we outline some of the best guidelines we have collected from many sources.
1. Chase Meaning Not Money – Believe it or not research has found that wealthier people are not happier than modestly paid people. The ingredients which can bring you happiness with your job and motivate you to achieve sustainability in your performance are much more humane than earning money. If you find meaning in what you do for yourself and other people and if you believe that you have a positive impact on your environment, you will be much happier. 2. Focus on Your Values and Talents – Think about what you would love to do if money didn’t matter. You will find your inner desire. Then be wise and make a realistic assessment of your strengths and weaknesses. When you make a realistic and honest match between what you want and what you can learn (or develop), you will find that one career worth waking up for in the morning. 3. Stop Looking for Your “Passion” – Finding a job is not waiting for your “click” (or finding that one thing that you love so much). It’s not about convenience. It’s a challenging process, but in the end you’ll find that one career that you are ready to put 100% of your efforts in because you appreciate it.
