What do you want to do, and why that?

If you are puzzled about what kind of work you want to do, here’s an idea that could help you. What do you want to do, and why that? I asked this question many times of people I worked with as a career coach. And, while teaching and coaching MBAs at Loyola Marymount University, I had the students do the following exercise. Most of them said that they learned something about themselves. You could too if you did it.

At the end of each day write which things you felt good about doing that day and which things you did not feel good about. After ten days or so, review what you have written. This should give you some ideas about what you enjoy doing and want to do in the future. Think about who you are benefiting, not just how much money you make. Your perspective about your work plays a significant role in what you do.

This is an idea from the book I wrote, CAREER CHANGE GUIDE. I share it here to help you figure out what do you want to do. The book guides you through a self-analysis and a successful career change.
