Lately I was wondering what makes some people happy with their current job, what makes other want more, and how these are shaped in time.
In my latest wildest dream(literally) I told my interviewer that I want to get so high in the food chain, that when I’ll screw up really bad, they will fire me and nobody else will ever hire me again, and possibly go to jail. But, of course, I will never get there because I enjoy baking muffins.
So, tell me, what’s your career goal (thus the title of this post), why and how has it changed over the years?
P.S. this is my way of dealing with possible competition, because research shows talking about your goals lowers the probability of achieving them - more about that here.
