Dec 19 2017, 2:11 pm

What do you want to do? Now that’s a scary question – and usually it becomes even scarier when you consider who’s asking: over-eager grandma, random career counselor guy, spouse, or worst of all mom or dad.

Realistically, you probably want to lie on a beach drinking Mai Tais or swish down the ski slopes all day, (who doesn’t?) but beaches and slopes aside, what do you want to do with your life? What legacy do you want to leave? What will be your life’s work?

No idea? Or maybe you have an idea, but it’s fuzzy? Even if you have a fuzzy idea, good – because without diving into too many statistics, 99.9999% of people have been in the same boat at some point in their lives.
