We often define ourselves by what we do.

I work in finance. I play piano. I create children’s books.

But there’s a significant difference between a hobby, a job and a career.

A hobby is something you enjoy doing. It keeps your life fun and interesting.

A job is simply a task you do to pay the bill. It doesn’t have to fulfill you.

A career is a job that you’re passionate about and that you love. Career is something where you’re willing to make sacrifices and work extra hours.

When we talk about career development, we should first try to find out what we’re really good at and what we love doing.

So how do we figure out what we’re meant to do?

It often starts with a process of self-discovery and it takes a lot of courage to make the first move.

It’s not easy.

But it worth trying to figure out.
