I am sure this is one of those uneasy questions and dilemas for many people, especially in a down economy time like today.


I have discovered that I am in the wrong field, despite past success, which I do of course like, am used to and found was the best way to work and be beneficial, but now I'm discovering that I'm doing it because of society, prestige, financial reward and social status.

What really makes me to die for it is apparently......science! Now, I'm asking myself how come I have never had the guts to try something that is not popular but really makes the difference in our life values/relevance & improves our social environment.


The question is: If one would have the urge to change the fields of profession what are the best ways to go about it?

Thanks for any suggestions or collaborative chat.
