If you’re in a career that really doesn’t ‘feed’ you, the first step is awareness then understanding it’s up to you to create the change you want. You must actively take one step at a time, in the present, to create the future you want. The emphasis is on ‘create.’ We all get lulled into the lifestyles afforded by better-paid careers but the truth is we don’t really need all the stuff. What we need is to be connected, be engaged and work on bigger picture goals that contribute to the world we live in.
