When your work is tied to your passion, the nagging question of "what do I want to be when I grow up?" is answered and provides a great deal of joy and energy.
I was continually nagged by the question, "what do I want to be when I grow up?"
Luckily, I had some time off from work and I decided that rather than watch television or bum around the house, I spent four weeks investing in myself. I read great books and listened to many podcasts. I exercised daily. I connected with my family. I worked at creativity.
And I researched my life to find clues of what I wanted to be when I finally "grew up."
I found an exercise that helped me out of my slump. It required an inventory of my life to find clues throughout my previous career history and as a child of where my passion lies. I asked friends and family what they felt my strong qualities were. In my inventory I ultimately rediscovered that what I enjoy doing is understanding why people do what they do and helping them to be more successful
