Fusion of love and Vocation:

“Knowing thyself” in oracular terms. The resultant specialist subject choices made, courses taken, performances, achievements and indeed failures endured with or without attendant refocusing. Choices of career path, courses to attain goals, educational / applied, relevant decisions, easy , difficult, struggles, forced choices internal – external or indeed no real choice at all. How various goals were achieved – careers founded, employment positions / jobs attained, promotions, progressions and attendant frustrations. Where people have come from in this regard, where they’re at now and where they’re going. The perceived choices available and the extent to which people have such choices and are in control of their vocational path. Vocation can change of course, through adaptive choice and / or necessity throughout life but it is always necessity – an essential commodity at any age. Boredom is not just a prerequisite of say beginning a career in youth but rather in any form of redundancy as in job loss in middle age or retirement in the elderly.
