Let me start by saying that I am a very motivated individual. I am organized to a point that drives others insane. I work hard and when I am doing something, I go above and beyond to be the best at it.
But, I get bored easily.
Call Center. I did that for over 10 years. At one company, I was promoted from the bottom to running my own department in less than 6 months.
I got bored and quit.
Healthcare. I worked as a Certified Medical Assistant for 5 years in 4 different positions. After a year I got bored, figured it was because of the position and moved to a different one. Finally, I realized that the career itself was boring me to no end. I was great at it, but miserable.
Real Estate. I’ve been in real estate for a year now. In my first year, I had 23 transactions. Great, right? Well, now I’m bored. I am interviewing to leave the field.
Insurance. I recently got my health and life insurance license, in hopes of transitioning out of real estate. I signed up to be an independent agent with a few carriers. I’ve been studying my behind off, haven’t had the money needed to market my business, so I haven’t sold even one policy yet. I’m already bored.
I have three interviews next week.
First interview is for a Medical Assistant position.
Second interview is for a Captive Life Insurance Agent position.
Third interview is for an employee status Real Estate Agent position.
I don’t know what I’m doing. I don’t want to do any of that.
I don’t know what I want to do.
I looked up the best careers for people with Schizoaffective disorder and found that the problem is that I should look for careers where I don’t have a lot of contact with people. I would do best in jobs like Librarian and virtual assistant. So, I guess that’s why these things aren’t working out.
I don’t know what to do, but I don’t see myself being a Librarian.
I always dreamed of being an Author. I’ve even self published four books, but I haven’t had time to write in quite some time. When I was on the psych meds, they really did a number on my creativity and even after stopping them, I’ve had trouble writing.
Still, the writing did not pay the bills and I have to find something that I can do full time without feeling like I want to pull my hair out.
In the meantime, I’m interviewing for jobs I really don’t want.
