Just like we can’t predict what happens in life, it is hard to tell, beforehand, what will happen in your career over the course of a lifetime. But this doesn’t mean that you can’t plan which direction your career should go – or make a bold career change.
There is no such thing as the perfect career, and no universal checklist to when you have made the perfect career. It is a highly individual thing. However, many would say that ‘passion’ is essential. This is often what will keep us going, even when times are tough. Some might also add ‘skills’ and ‘your values’ as good objectives to define the perfect career – for you.
