Your Moment of Zen
Dear CC: How do you find a career, not just a job?
Not to go all self-help on you, but it really is true: If
you can find something you love, you'll probably be good at it - or at least
work hard enough so you'll eventually get good - and if you are good, someone
will pay you for it. Yes, they're likely to pay you more if you can crunch P/E
ratios rather than perform a sublime grand jeté. It's OK to try on a
few things until you stumble upon what exactly your passion is. Or maybe you
just end up working to get the paycheck and to stay off the streets, and your
passion is your kids, your guitar, your weekly bowling game. It doesn't make
you a bad person. CC will never hire you, but you're not a bad person.
