You realize that you’re probably going to have to work until your late 60s. And you’ve decided for now to stay in your current line of work, but to make it work the best for you.
We’re assuming that you’ve been doing what you do for a while, maybe even all of your working life. But perhaps you’re not as passionate as you once were, nor as fulfilled as you’d like to be.
