People aspire to certain professions because these professions often hold deeply personal significance. However, for the people I work with, there is often a discrepancy between what they had hoped they would be doing and what they actually do for a living. It may be meaningful in that they have been able to support a family but holds less meaning when examined from a personal perspective. Some of the most interesting work I have done is with people who resumed their quest for an authentic, meaningful professional life in their fifties, sixties, seventies, and eighties because they realized no matter how old they were that the work they did was vitally significant.
