Career choices can feel so complicated because we're multi-faceted. We want challenging, impactful work and deep relationships. We want to feel rich but also sleep, exercise and eat well. We want to experience mastery. These different priorities pull us in many directions.
We're even told we can do it all, but we can't. Each of us has only 24 hours a day.
Start with the end in mind. As suggested in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, "Begin with the end in mind." What do you want to look back on at the end of your life?
The question reveals how a deeper meaning comes from service and how little money matters. But not everyone can live the day-to-day life required for these deathbed accomplishments.
Instead of starting with the end in mind, we can imagine our desired day-to-day lives now and in five or ten years.
Impose constraints on the work that you do based on the life you want to live.
Suppose you know what role work should play in your life, then consider what specific work and in which areas you should do it.
Find the intersection of what you're good at, what you love, what the world needs, and what you can get paid for.
If you don't know what you love, perhaps you can only find out if you try it on to see if it fits.
The future is fundamentally different than it appears. We can't know what we'll like and what not before trying it first.
We can find out what we like in two ways:

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
