What Career Are You Meant For?

If you are like me, you have spent a lot of time wondering what your perfect career might be. You might have a career, or you may not, but you have probably wondered about it. If you have one and enjoy it, you probably think about it less than someone who hates their job.

If you are like most people, you think you have the perfect career on days you are having fun, and you wonder how you ever got there and where you might turn to find greener pastures on days when you are miserable.

Careers are strange things. Why do we spend so much time and effort on a career? Is it because we want to find meaning in our lives and do something rewarding? Or is it because we want to leave a legacy, a way for us to be remembered after we are gone?

Legacy is another interesting concept. Why would we care about what people think after we are gone? Do we believe that we will be affected by people’s thoughts about us after death? Or do we feel that we will somehow live on if someone thinks about us, and legacy is some form of life extension, a way to survive beyond the grave?

No matter what your reasons are for pursuing a career, even if it is only part time, we all share the desire to do something meaningful and we are all doing our best to live life to the fullest. We all do it in different ways, and some of those ways are more beneficial to humanity than others, but we are all trying our best with what we have been given.

Sometimes we find ourselves in tough situations, but we try anyway. In the end, we all end up the same, and all that is left is our legacy. Maybe this matters, and maybe it doesn’t, but since no one knows one way or the other…
