Have you ever felt trapped in his career? Employee stress and burnout may account for a lot of dissatisfaction in your life. After all, you are at work around 8 hours per day or more. That's 1 / 3 of your day if you do not take into account sleep. That's a long time to be satisfied.

If you feel stuck, here are six great ways to find your ideal career:

1. Brainstorm on a sheet of paper - I've discussed this before and it's a strategy I use all the time. Take a sheet of paper and write on top of its target in question form. Then, just a list of 20 answers to your question. For example, you could write "What should I do with my time and my life?" Then sit for half an hour to an hour to come up with answers to that question. The key to this exercise is that it comes with 20 answers - do not quit until they are 20 replies. You can repeat every day until you get the answer you seek.

2. Ask three close friends - Sometimes our friends know us better than ourselves. In a meeting with one of your friends, talk that we are at a crossroads in his life and his career. Ask what they think you like to do. You may be surprised at how easy it is zero for their strengths and skills and report perfect workspace.

3. Ask your boss and co-workers - like their friends in the above example, your boss and coworkers will most likely see in a way that is not seen. In fact, chances are most familiar with their strengths and weaknesses in the work environment. Compile all the responses it receives from them and see if there are common themes that can be explored.

4. Call a headhunter - If you are looking for in your career, chances are you have a resume. Sometimes you can take a headhunter or recruiter during your slow times and meet with them to pick through what might be good. I have done at different times in my life and people seem willing to talk with people. After all, if not paid, they do not. The ideas I get are usually good.

5. Take a career assessment test - There are several sites that might be able to take one of these tests for a fee. But with my 'scouting' tip above, many scouts have this software and do not care to take the exam in his office. I have taken this test twice in my life and usually take an hour or two, but they are thorough. You are prompted to answer a series of questions about what is good, what you enjoy doing, what they prefer to do more of what does not. If one take, you will likely see some interesting new areas to explore in your life.

6. Keep a diary - Do you keep a diary? If so, read, looking for common elements in their writing. Keep your eyes open for trends and activities you like and dislike. In fact, finding examples of what you do not like and what frustrates you is almost as important as finding what you like. For example, if you do not like a huge head, probably as a position of self-directed. If you hate nosy co-workers are likely to prefer their own office.

Discover what you really want to do with your life is the most important decision you can make. We spend 1 / 3 or more of our lives at work. So find the right career is important to keep that 1 / 3 of our lives happy and productive.
