35. It's All About Passion
After working in the current position for a few years and watching several colleagues switching career paths, I believe I have figured out the key to choosing the right career path: It's all about passion. What employers expect for each position is someone who is great at what he or she does, and it takes a lot of effort to be great, instead of being merely good. If one is passionate about one's job, he or she can put in a lot of effort and still enjoy it at the same time. On the other hand, if one tries to stay on an unpassionate path, it probably does more harm in the long run. So, what is your passion? It pays to find out!
