Research shows that people who are the most successful in their careers are those who love the work they do. So how do you find work you will enjoy?
1. Start with your interests. Make a list of things you like to do
(ie: hobbies, skills, etc.).
2. List all the things you want to try, places you want to go, and
goals you would like to accomplish in your lifetime. The sky’s
the limit! Do not exclude things because they seem impossible
or because you do not presently have the skills sets or means to
achieve a goal. In short, dream BIG.
3. Your career is now lying before you in the form of these lists.
Your success can be measured by how many of these interests
you satisfy and goals you accomplish. Remember, these lists
are a work in progress. Over time, circumstances change and
interests change. These evolving lists will act as your career

that can help people understand more about their personality preferences
and how this can help them with their communication, relationships and
