    Is your current job your “passion”? If not, what is?

    “This is something I have been struggling with. I am good at what I do, but it doesn’t make me excited. I have this creative side, which comes in handy when thinking through challenging problems, but there is only so much creativity that I can use when in data analysis. I have given up on the notion that you should find passion in your job. I think that’s where a lot of millennials become discontent in their jobs.

    “Many people in my generation probably grew up hearing that they can be whatever they want to be. You go to college thinking that you’ll solve the world hunger, but the reality is that most careers pay the bills and keep the lights on. I have come to terms with that. I love doing design and artwork, but I am not sure if I want to make a career out of it. It’s more of a side passion.”
