individuality. So let's take a wiser more balanced approach. iki guy still has utility but don't take it too literally. Instead, use it to assess your current state what you're getting from your current job. Become aware of what you really seek from your work and pay attention to how your work could really give you that often that satisfaction is right there right under your nose. Remember, a career shouldn't fulfill all of life's needs. In the face of uncertainty. Many people struggle with career choices rather than dictating that prepares them to embrace uncertainty.
