As I said before, last week I spent a couple days at the AME (Association of Moral Education) 33rd Annual Conference down at NYU. The view was wonderful from the building we were at; just for that it was worth it.
The conference itself was very insightful. I use to teach moral development back when I worked at Universidad Metropolitana in Caracas, and it was great to update myself with current research and findings in the field. It got me thinking though. Do I still miss what I use to do/teach? Would I like to go back into this field now as researcher? Would I like to go back to teaching at all? If I did only research, would I like to concentrate in this field?
So many questions, so few certainties… things will sort out themselves, I’m sure, they always do. For now I’m concentrating in finishing my dissertation and getting my doctorate degree. The right job will come along, and synchronistically, as all my jobs seem to be, I’ll get to where I need to be.
How have you guys found your calling/passion in your professional lives? Are you doing what you think you were born to do? Are you exploiting your talents? I heard the other that when one has a God given talent, it is one’s duty to use it. What if you don’t like to do whatever it is you’re good at? Is it still your duty? Or what if your talent is just not profitable enough to provide for the life you want? Do you still pursue a bad paying dream? Hmmm, ponder, ponder, ponder.
