Do not let your career consume your being. You might be blessed to be working a job that is your passion or it may just be a paycheck. Explore your real interests, passions, strengths, and skills. Maybe you love hiking/trekking and you think a lot about being a tour guide-then go try it out for a few months. Your job will not let you take the time off? Then quit or keep the job and work on your passion part time, but your passion deserves your full time attention. Crunching numbers, financial analysis, IT, and marketing is not going there. It will always be there for you, especially if you have the education and experiences to back it up.
We have to come up with new,fresh ways to respond to our being. Any ideas, thoughts? Do you get tired of answering the same question, "What do you do?". Most people do not ask you after that question, "Are you happy?" "Do you enjoy it?" My belief is that your job response is frequently associated with your identity-who are you are as a person. This does not have to be the case. Explore your interests, talents, abilities, and redefine yourself. Next time you are asked this question-share what you really love and what you are truly passionate about, but if you are living in your passion-awesome- keep living in your purpose!=)
