Do you know what you really want? Sounds a strange question but many people don’t! You may know slightly more about what you want in life, but even that isn’t always the case…

When you finished your ‘A’ levels (or equivalent), did you do any vocational testing to see what career you were most suited to before you decided whether you wanted to go to University or not, and if so, what type of degree to take?

If you don’t feel fully ‘in the flow’ at work doing some exploration into what you really want, finding where your real passions and talents lie, could be beneficial. We spend the majority of our life in the workplace. This means the feelings and attitude we have at work spill over into the rest of our life and affect everything around us – our relationships, health, quality of life… So, much better to make career and passion come together and enjoy what you do during your workday rather than feeling the life slowly drain out of you from abject boredom and lack of motivation.
