Sometimes a job just isnít enough. Your career should reflect your passions and your deepest values. The following worksheet can help you get started identifying the passions that can lead to a fulfilling career.
To figure out what you like to do and get someone to pay you for doing it, complete the worksheet below. Donít dwell on each question or over-think each answer. Simply jot down any idea that comes to you, no matter how ridiculous it may sound. Brainstorm as many ideas as you can. A few days later, review the worksheet to see if you can come up with any additional ideas.
Once you have assessed your strengths, interests, passions, and assets, you can search for careers that seem appropriate. Start with your local Yellow Pages, looking up words from your answers or about which you feel strongly. Find businesses that might interest you, and start researching! Donít get discouraged if your search doesnít pan out right away; career exploration is a journey that can take a lifetime.
