Well you have to ask yourself what you want to accomplish.. you have to find a goal.. Look what studies would be required if you wanted to do a job in the field of ''research'' then try to narrow it down a bit as research is a massive field.. try to ask yourself what would interest you most. what kind of research and what are realistic chances.. maybe you can go to evening classes .. just find a goal. my cousin picked up his studies in psychology when he was 40.. he has been going to Uni and working .. for the past 4 years.. I have every belief that he will get his degree and he will be finished with his studies in 2009.. he will be 45 then but better late than never.. He had studied arts and sports and history before but there was absolutely no chance to find a teaching postion in those subjects.. so he worked as a ''cartoonist for a newspaper for a while and now is working for Telecom and studying.. you have a nice avatar.. but Mr cat if you want to catch a mouse.. you have to go mouse hunting.. they won't come running to you ... mice are smarter than that.. We all know that just from watching '' Tom and Jerry''

when it comes to work, you will rarely be passionate about anything....but when it comes to life, it is more likely that you are passionate about something. dont think about a career as a way to pay the bills. even though it is sometimes advantageous to do something you hate or dont like, it rarely is worth it. I was the top student in my school when i left but i have followed my dream of being an artist and i have made a living from it. I could have been a pilot or doctor or anything i wanted but i took the plunge and went for my passion.although my friends have more than me, they are all miserable people trying to keep up with the joneses... i have also just been offered some opportunities that may make me more money than them anyway... that is also because i love what i do so doors are opening up for me all the time. dont think of the money, just do what you love and you will go far and retire the happiest person in the world

Find out what you enjoy doing in your spare time, if you enjoy what you do and the results makes you feel gratified, chances are this will be an area of passion An old saying "if you enjoy what you do, it will never be work for you" If you find something that you really love doing like planting flowers and tending to plants and surrounding, that would be your passion, you can always take you love for plants to many levels and areas. The same could be said if you loved to sew and make things, this would be another passion, perhaps you could combine the two and realize that you love making beautiful things and become a Martha Steward :-)

A career is hardly ever something to get passionate about. I say that because you don't want to make your career your life. A job is a job and your life is your life. Always keep them separate. However, to find something you LIKE to work at, imagine yourself working in a particular field for the rest of your life, years and years and years, and see what kind of reaction it stirs.

As lame as this sounds, picture yourself doing each job ten years from now. The awards or envirnment, the co-workers and the location. Which one makes you feel all warm and bubbly inside? Which one do you think would be worth going to school for? Which one will you see supporting you for the rest of your life?

Mesech Originally Answered: Is the career Anesthesiology a demanding career?
Have you considered becoming a nurse anesthestist? (sp??) They are required to complete nursing school, usually a BSN then go to graduate school and study the advanced field of anesthesiology. The pay is very good, one of the highest paying in the medical field and the responsibility is great. The nurse anesthestist I know makes about $170,000 a year and writes his own schedule (around surgeries) and is the one in charge of all airway in the operating room. He answers to an anesthesiologist (MD), but has the liberty to run the OR as he pleases and was trained. Very liberating field. PS, I'd think that any field you chose wouldn't be "boring" along the way. To be an anesthesiologist (MD) you get your bachelors degree in anything, usually science related (biology, chemistry) then apply to medical school (4 years). Once you finish med school, you apply to a number of teaching hospitals for residency. You go where you get accepted. Spend 3 years in residency (sometimes 4) then 2 years as an anesthesiology fellow (working mainly in anesthesiology). If you want to become on staff full time, you apply for a staff position and are called an attending physician. It is a long haul. If interested, I'd go the bachelor of science in nursing, get excellent grades, then start working as a nurse. (you have your bachelor's degree - first step of MD process). Get your masters in anesthesiology - and start working (usually a three year program but you can work in the field as a nurse while you are in grad school). then, if you want to go the route of MD, go to med school after that, but you can short cut your way by doing the nurse anesthesia route and if you don't like it, you are still a nurse and can switch and work in any field. Good luck.
