Is it time for a career change when you lose the passion for your job?Credit:Digital image: Philip Burgoyne

QUESTION:

I’ve worked in the same career for about 15 years. I’ve had pay rises, promotions and been successful by other people’s measures. But the “higher” I’ve got, the more meaningless I feel my work has become.

We talk about “value creation” and “value adding” every day and I feel like I don’t produce or contribute anything of value. Friends, colleagues and family tell me “Do something you love” but what I love won’t pay the bills. I feel stuck. What can I do?
