One principle for Career Development: "Job for Talent; Hobby for Passion" 경력개발의 원칙: 잘하는 건 직업으로, 좋아하는 건 취미로. 비록 어떤 일을 좋아하진 않아도 직업이나 일을 잘 하기만 한다면, 그것을 바로 당신의 "직업"으로 삼는 것이 바람직하다. 한편, 어떤 일을 미치도록 좋아한다면 평생에 걸쳐 그 일을 취미활동으로 삼는 것이 바람직하다. 필자의 경험상 어떤 일을 미치게 좋아했던 사람일 수록 그 일을 직업으로 삼았을 때 너무 짧은 시간 너무 많은 에너지를 쏱아부어 결국은 곧 열정이 식게되고 (Burnout 신드롬) 그 직업을 떠나는 경우를 많이 보아왔다. 또한, 많은 경우 어떤 직업에서 재능이 없어 일을 제대로 해내지 못한채 하루하루 지..
