Every year I ask myself if I'm doing what I want to do, being what I want to be.
I take numerous career assessments, psychology tests, and read various self-help
books on career development. I read somewhere that a person on average changes
career five times during his/her lifetime. One management professor
once said that you can change the industry and the function but not at the same
time. In the US, my ex-colleagues job-hop as a way to increase their pay.
The whole world of work is changing, towards more flexibility.
