Satisfying work. Can't bring myself to do anything else. I have "better plans" which I never seem to put into play.
I can relate without a doubt. Without trying to sound like I'm the sole 5w4 with all the answers , I think it's important to:
1. Give yourself options. Become qualified in 2 or 3 different areas/careers. If you *think* you'd like to teach and you also think you'd like to start your own business, then get qualified to teach and begin starting your own business (while working). If you don't like 1, you've got the other going for you still.
2. Remember the importance of baby steps. I think it's easy for us to want it all *right now*. For instance, I'm going to market a product in the near future. But, first I have to (a) Write down all my ideas (business plan as well as documenting my entire idea for the purpose of getting a patent), (b) do in-depth market research, (c) create a prototype, (d) get the patent. Only then would it be wise (or even possible) to attempt to market the product. What I'm saying here is that it's important for us to realize that things like this take time. I spent about 3 years documenting and brainstorming my idea. The next step will take time too (hopefully not that long). It's a process.
Just keep inching towards the things you want to do. Do *one* real, tangible, concrete thing every day to get you closer to what you want to do. Something that literally brings it closer to reality. Not just "ooooohh, I'd love to do that, that would be cool." Actually physically do something that brings it closer.
With all that said, I've certainly wasted many days myself wishing I could do something else. Once again, blame it on the P.
NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.
