I’ve been struggling a lot with what the future will be lately. I’m not facing any big decisions or changes – this is all on my own of my own thinking.
For a long time I’ve worked in ecommerce. I like it. Some days I even love it. I love working in technology in a space that means something to me. (Meaning I’m a HUGE online shopper. Sometimes to my own detriment) I’ve loved being a part of such a fast changing world full of new and interesting problems.
Lately however, I’ve started having a bit of a mid life crisis. I want to start making a bigger impact on the world around me. I volunteer, I support issues, I vote. But I really want to work on something important all day.
I fully recognize this is neither unique or unusual.
What’s next? Can I make enough money? Am I too old?
One of my resolutions (ugh, I hate that word) is to spend real time thinking creatively about this question I can’t shake. Every day I try to think of one idea of how I could use my skills as a product manager, marketer, tech lover to solve a problem around hunger and homelessness. I haven’t hit on anything yet, but I’m trying.
Anyone else struggling with this?
