Do you know what you really want in your career?

About ten years ago I came home one day and said to my wife, “I can’t do this anymore”. It doesn’t matter what I was doing, I just couldn’t do that anymore. I knew it. Something had to change. Steve Jobs is famously quoted as saying, “people don’t know what they want until you show them”, […]
