So you’ve decided you need a job change—you hate your current job, or you have a ton of interests, or you’ve maxed out where you are and need to figure out your next move.

If you do that, then I promise you: slowly but surely, you will discern an initially blurry but over time increasingly sharp image outlining exactly how you should be spending most of your waking hours (otherwise known as your profession) (aka your calling) (basically: the stuff that earns you the money that will pay your bills).

Up tomorrow:

Figuring out what exactly you actually want to be doing, mostly, during the day, while you’re awake.
