    Have you ever taken the time to think about what you really enjoy doing and to engineer your life so that you can spend your time doing that? This video talks about that a little more.

    Students these days have started taking their own decision in everything they do.
    The result of which, only few have achieved what they have aimed for and the rest has realized that they took a wrong path to succeed in life and career.
    People always hesitate to consult the specialist regarding their career who after analyzing can tell them, what they can do best with hands on capabilities and interests.
    Always go for educational consultancy before taking up major decisions regarding your education and career.

    I am someone who is really fond of computer. I am trying to learn some computer hardware and software related lessons. But I am little sick these days. But Still I am using my computer and would like to do job related to computer like hardware maintenance. I think everybody should do what they really like not what they are forced to.

Hope I will get a chance to be in History related thing a little bit later in my life...

    That's a great topic Fergal! I am probably one of the lucky ones doing what I love doing. But then that was after years of exploring what might be I love to do for life and over 10 years of efforts changing career path after finding it. It all paid off...the satisfaction and enjoyment in just doing what I love doing makes work like a hobby, something I would do even without pay :), something you wouldn't give up doing even when not getting enough financial rewards in a bad economy...

    I hope everyone has that "luck", or strive to find that "something love doing for life", then go for it... Work/life would be much more enjoyable. That's what I want to instill in my kids, and young people in general.

    If you are not so lucky to be doing what you love doing, and cannot change it at least for now, then an alternative would be to turn what you are doing (but not liking) into something more enjoyable. In Positive Psychology, research has produced a method(s) to do just that, or to "recraft" a task/job into an enjoyable activity using a unique skill based on the "Flow Theory" principles (the "success trick" in my signature line actually refers to that :). It is not that difficulty or "tricky", but does take some training...

    This is a great idea. I think for e-mail marketing or campaigning you have to hire a company who can provide you bunch of e-mail ids to whom you can send your advertisements.

    I love playing guitar and traveling and tracking in mountains but because of hectic schedule in office these days I am not getting time to do the things I love.
