Do You Know What You Want?

Daily ReadDo You Know What You Want?

Figuring out what you don’t like or don’t want out of a job or out of life seems pretty simple, but figuring out what you do want is much more difficult. Sure we could jump from job to job trying to find the right fit for our life, but practically speaking it will take a lot of time and a lot of jobs to figure out your life direction and passion. So how do we fire up our imagination and engage our heart to really figure out what we want out of life? Try these four things:

  1. Travel opens your mind to possibilities. It takes you outside of your comfort zone, helps you appreciate what you have at home, or, on the flip side, helps you discover alternatives to our American lifestyle.
  2. Work an internship. Through internships, you can meet and talk to people honestly from various industries, pick up a few solid skills and learn whether or not you want to actually pursue a career in that field. Bonus: to be “prestigious” to be beneficial.
  3. Get a hobby – or five.  Trying heaps of new hobbies can introduce you to passions you never might have discovered. It gets you out of your house and meeting people.
  4. Talk to someone.  A friend, co-worker orboss – sometimes we need an outside observer to point out things we never would have noticed otherwise.
