Without any doubt, the opportunity to turn your frivolous hobby into your life’s work is one of the best things you can do for your future. “Choose a job you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life” as said Confucius and his words are true even throughout the ages!

Deep self-examination and some simple tips can help you to find out what exactly inspires you. Some of them you can find here, in this article.

As Roxette sang: “Listen To Your Heart”.

That is the first thing you should do! Write a list of things that make you smile (or a list of dreadful things and throw it right into the bin) and try to turn them into possible professions. For example, you adore embroidering — so come on! Become a seamstress or designer! Do you like eating apples? Sing a song about apples, become an apple-sommelier or gardener, whatever you want!

Ask your friends

This advice really can help you to find out your way. Your mates may know your preferences more than you do because they can analyze things you are talking about all the time. Birds of a feather flock together so just let your hair down and catch up with your friends!

Try something new or even brand-new!

People, who don’t afraid to live a real-life run the world and that is the fact. You can choose whatever you want to do, wherever to live or whoever to date, it’s all up to you!

One of the most popular tendencies, for now, is IT, so if you don’t know what to try — try programming! There are a lot of stereotypes, that coding is only for math people, but you should try and you will find out that it’s captivating and not as complicated as people say. When I wanted to learn something new during quarantine time, I found a brilliant course called HTMLAcademy. This course has several fields to study: Backend Development (the most difficult one, about the server-side of the programming), React.JS Development (the next step after frontend), and Frontend Development (it is about the client-side of the site, for me the most interesting and basic, that’s why everyone starts in IT from this point). They have a free tryout for frontenders which is very informative and relevant and this free basic course is enough for beginners. If you realize that you need more, you can purchase an extended course or just develop your skills on your own. Also, HTMLAcademy provides jobs for the best students so this course can turn into your window into the future!

Try it out! If you have also any suggestions or you want to share your experience — you’re welcome in the comments!
