Just yesterday, I came to a conclusion. I'm tired of compromising my passions with my job. I am less that 8 years out of college, and I have had nine jobs, none of them I was passionate about. The one I held the longest, and enjoyed the most, ended up burning me out, and now I'm in yet another job where my soul is being drained, my interests are atrophied from lack of activity, and I'm in a place where I can't take it anymore.
I'm ready for a change. Now. I own 48 days, and the Extreme Eaglepreneur package, but I'm stymied by step 1. It's been so long since I've had a chance to believe that my dreams could become real, I find that I don't know where to look for my passion, my calling, my vocation.
Being a precisionist, this is a difficult place for me, as clear directions are all but non-existent. Add to that being a Jack-of-all-Trades, having multiple disparate interests, and I'm left confused. The happiest times that I can remember involves vacations to different places, but I'm struggling find a way turn that into a career. I very much enjoy philosophy and the study of Christianity, and have been involved with leading Sunday schools in the past. I also have a long-standing love of technology, and while I'm very handy fixing computers, that was the job I mentioned getting burned-out with. Now in addition, let's add a fondness for writing, an enjoyment of jewelry-making, love of hunting, and skills in construction and home repair.
I realize that my varied interests cannot all be joined together in one super-job, but with the plethora of choices at my command, my mind has gone into overload mode. If any of you have been in a similar situation, or can offer a modicum of advice or direction, you would have my everlasting thanks.
