Motivation follows action. . . but what about passions/wants?
So as a longtime PAer I know the motivation follows action. It's generally a good idea to DO something rather than waiting until you feel like doing it.
But what about long-term things? I think most of us would agree that it is best to "do what you love". But what do you do when it doesn't really feel like you love very many things?
Let me explain further. I always "wanted" a Phd. But I never really thought about WHY I wanted it- mostly to show off. Which is a really bad reason. People who get Phds in say, physics, do it because they LOVE physics.
So here I am, 24 years old, with no degree, and now no idea if I even truly want a degree for the right reasons. I'm all about doing what I love, but the problem is I don't know what I love (other than my beautiful son of course <3 ).
For anyone who has figured this out, can you tell me how you did it? I feel like I should know what the bloody heck I am doing with my life by now :(
(I think this does belong in this forum as this plays a role in my procrastination, and surely I am not the only one!)
