What am I going to do with my life?

I googled that title - perhaps I am more Gen Y than I care to admit, and up popped a graduation speech Steve Jobs did at Stanford University in 2005.


This whole concept of doing what you love, finding what you love sounds seductively simple. I am in the curious position where the Universe, via my boss, has instructed me to find something to do other than what I have been doing for the past 16 months. Which don't get me wrong, stings a bit right now.

I have previously done something that I loved, that I felt really good at, that I felt added value and good to the world. I have done things that make me utterly miserable and been taken advantage of to the extent where I have packed up and walked out and never gone back. I have watched someone I love leave this Earth far earlier than is fair in any objective sense. And I believe I can say, without any vanity or drama, that I have left behind the Spring of my youth and should be rocking around in the glorious, hazy days of my Summer years about now.

So what do I love doing?
