Most people are looking for this. And are yet hardly finding anything relevant to them.
And so I chanced upon an article that explained this really well. Here are the main points from there:
- Your career is not your life.
- Explore, then exploit.
- Don’t do the job you want to tell other people you do. Do the job you want to do.
- Be ruthlessly honest with yourself about what you value—and how much professional success matters to you.
- Flow comes from voluntary, difficult, and worthwhile work.
