I read an article the other day that, in a work context, rather than try to find something that is an exact match to you, it is better to take a craftsman’s approach to what you do – to do it to the best of your abilities. My father (heavy power engineer) reckons that if you investigate anything closely it becomes interesting. On the other hand I’d still like an absorbing hobby, particularly since I’ll be retiring (hopefully) in a few years 5 months ago

I added this goal quite some time ago, and the more I think about it, the more obvious the answer is.
While I love so many things in life, the ones that I keep coming back to are teaching, travel, and more and more so lately, cooking/food. I have come to define myself by these things, and if I don’t have enough of them in my life, I miss them immensely.
I quit my main teaching job last month to stay home with my daughter, and I’m not looking into local volunteer ESL opportunities because it’s not about the money, it’s my passion.
At any rate, I’ve known this for a while now, and I no longer feel the need to have this listed as a goal. 8 months ago
