Sunday, August 11, we watched a movie called 3 Idiots, an Indian Film. The movie tackles about making your passion a profession. Is it still possible to apply this ideology in the present society? We are living in the busy 21st century. Life nowadays is all about generating money for yourself, your future or your family. Can you still use what you truly love as a profession if your priority is earning money for a living?
Honestly, I have conflicting thoughts on this. There are some people who earns millions of dollars yet never gets fulfillment from getting their job done. On the contrary, there are some people who loves their job and earns from little to just enough, if you know what I mean.
To analyze this, I reviewed my past. During my childhood, I have a great interest in Science which turns out to be my degree - Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. I do not have any regrets in taking up this course because like I said, I love science specially - Chemistry. I practiced this profession in a little length of time which turns out to be not so much fulfilling in terms of financial needs at that moment.
Eventually, I changed my line of work from science to clerical to managerial then into managerial & technical. I can say that my current job is still in line with science since I deal mostly on complexities of technology namely, Microsoft products. I just couldn't practice what I mostly learned in college days other than sharing it to students during my part time work as Chemistry tutor. Moreover, there is a significant difference between what I am earning now compared in the past.
Do I enjoy my current work? hmmm... let me think about it. My dear readers, let me save my answer and leave these questions instead:
- What are your priorities?
- What kind of profession do want to have which you think you will enjoy?
- What are the good qualities of your current job do you like most?
- If you can change your line of work, what would it be? Why would like to change it?
- What are the factors that affect your decision in taking your current or future job?
- Which do you really like, the job title or the tasks/responsibilities that is associated with the job?
Happy reading and remember - GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME!
