Society tells us to choose a career path based on skills we possess or areas of interest from school, and maybe you get the opportunity to make a difference. Are you now questioning whether your current job or chosen career is a good fit? As you look at the career path you have traveled and contemplate the path in front of you, important questions to ask include:
What brings meaning to my life? How do these aspects of life connect with my current position, current career?
What parts of my current job or career path bring me joy? What parts steal my joy?
If I change jobs or career paths, but take my same way of thinking with me, will I be fulfilled?
What is my ideal work-life balance? What needs to change in work, in life, in myself to bring about balance?
The phrase “career path” acknowledges that as we expand our skill set and world view our path may diverge from its original course. In addition, career paths are connected to our identity. This connection is why our employment needs to do more than pay the mortgage. Our career path needs to align with who we believe ourselves to be at our core.
