Do you know what is your passion? if you donot know,please read this article.
In my case,I only discover only after eight years or working as a civil engineer at JKR.When I was the chief structural engineer for hospital projects I found out that I did not much interest in the engineering part but more in the management of the projects.From JKR,I opted to join Kumpulan Perangsang Selangor as a project manager.Later I joined a construction company and later joined my relative property development company.
As the years went by,my engineering interest faded away and I ended becoming the CEO of a listed company on KLSE-mainly corporate management. From my personal experience,I noticed that my 'passion' changed over the 20 years from engineering to management.In the last 10 years, my 'passion' moved from management to seeking higher knowledge in Islam studies.However, to foot my bills(earning my living),I have to work and use my core competencies in project/general management which I have acquired over the last three decades.
To younger men and women out there, please take some time to comtemplate as early as possible to identify your passion(work or play) so that you have more time to become experts and enjoy your lives.By the way,I discovered mountain biking more than 10 years ago but only became active last year.As they say,it is better late than never..similarly about photography.
