Conflicted On How To Start My Journey

Disclaimer…this is a long, potentially complicated one. Bottom line:  I feel conflicted about my choice moving forward and how to implement my “purpose”. Objective:  Get multiple opinions on this question (BTW, DISC says I am an information gatherer who is indecisive and a perfectionist). I worked with 48 Days Coach Jeff Beaudin.  I went to him with nothing, not a single idea or feeling of purpose.  Found six categories of interest/purpose/passion with about 35 potential jobs (thanks Jeff). …See More

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I heard about the book when searching for a calling and found the web-site from there. By being part of this community, I hope to gain inspiration from other peoples stories and hopefully one day offer others inspiration.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Employee with Federal Government.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
Still trying to figure this out.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I have just now setting goals in my areas and trying to get some success in areas outside of my employment.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
Still working on these, but getting closer all the time.
