I am an introvert. This is important to note because as an introvert, I have some peculiar requirements to truly be happy with a career. Working at a job that requires a lot of socialization would drive me crazy.
Sometimes you go into a career because it is a good money-maker. After a while it doesn’t matter how much money you make. Nobody wants to punch a clock on a job they hate. The obvious thing to do would be to find a career that you love. For some that maybe easier said then done.
I work better alone, because of my way of thinking through a task; there are a few other things, but this is the main one. It took me some time to figure that I shouldn’t try to fit into a particular job because of the money.
