We spend most of our waking lives at work–in occupations often chosen by our unthinking younger selves. And yet we rarely ask ourselves how we got there or what our occupations mean to us.
I have been thinking do we choose our careers or do they in some way choose us.
How are lives are shaped by our jobs is incredible. Many of our social circles revolve around our careers. Interests, readings, classes all may entail stuff we do for our job.
Most of us have moved into their current profession when we were young, not realizing that now years later how enmeshed we are. Sometimes climbing up the ladder other times languishing at the same desk for years.
How many of us have thought if I had to it all over again I would do it differently?
How many would say I would do it exactly the same?
