A Harvard Business School professor once asked me:
Do you have 20 years of experience, or one year of experience 20 times?
To be happy in your career, you need to tackle new challenges, and to be fulfilled in your career, you should try to focus on your purpose–over all the perks, including income and position.
What fulfils you? What can make you want to bounce out of bed in the morning? If you can incorporate a little more purpose into your career, you won’t want it to end…and you can carry on with purposeful activity well past retirement.
