Some people discover their Dream Role (their "calling") early and enjoy a full career in one occupation (i.e., Dentist, Teacher, Electrician). Most people's career paths are more varied.

 The goal is not necessarily to find a single occupation that will be perfect for a lifetime. It is to find the best possible pathways through the maze of evolving career possibilities. You will find you probably won't know at the outset all their future roles along your career path. For most this will be an unfolding, lifelong story. They key, as with any maze, is where one starts.
