    maybe if you're missing the big picture you should take a break from your work?! some holidays to help put it all back in perspective?!

    i don't know, i'm actually confused by your post, because on the one hand you say you've reached your dreams, on the other you seem unsatisfied because "you want to save the world"?! ...I have no solution for your instincts to "save the world", i have problems with this myself, but regarding your work i still don't understand how you can feel you've reached your dream...i mean, are you the BEST at what you do? is there no more you can learn in your job? do you have no more challenges to be better, to be more efficient, to learn something new or better? If really you feel stuck maybe you could also change your profession a bit...like, for example, if you're in charge of sound, maybe you'd also like to see what it's like to be assistant director.... mmm, or still, you could still do your specialization but change line of work a bit...for ex in case you're in charge of sound, you could try producing an album....if you're doing lights you could try being a photographer on the side. i don't know, there are SO MANY POSSIBILITIES....are you sure you're not slightly depressed or something?

I work on big budget movies. Ones that go to the movie theaters. Ones you've seen. Sure I'd love to direct or act but I don't need that. It's not something that would make me happy. It's just minor details in my big picture.

    I feel so blessed to hVe my opportunities. It's seriously out of my hands! I'm like man I'd love to work on that and then I get an offer. I've been working non-stop.

    I move. I travel. I go city to city. Pack up and move. So I am getting new situations so my job isn't boring. It's wonderful. But I fear that I'm going to sabotage myself to get back my goals.

    An ENFP. I WANT TO SAVE THE WORLD. I am in constant pain from taking people's problems on myself. I do try and help the people around me as would any of you. It's to the point where my istj thinks it's unhealthy how much I want to help people and make their lives better.

    I mean I dunno. Things are great but in worried I will miss having to work so hard for something unattainable. I'm not saying I don't have to work hard to find another movie because believe me I do. It's just that my big picture outlook is gone and that scares me.

    So no enfp can relate?? Must be a type 3 problem.

    My career has always been my goal. Sure I'm
    Not making millions but money has never been my goal.

    yup, that's a type 3 thing, only another ENFP who was also 3 could relate to that
    the only suggestion I can give, now that your job seems to be secure in the career that you love, why not focus on another area of your life like relationships, fitness or taking up a hobby?
    Edit: you are a very ENFJ-ish ENFP

    Well, it's too easy to have a goal that does not involve a ranking of sorts. I mean, for example if you're a sports player you need to aim to be "the best player in the world", not just "a professional soccer player" etc.

    such a goal is economically worthless due to the point of diminishing returns. being a perfectionistic goal setter and only going after 1 goal is sub prime compared to someone who masters 1 goal and next moves to master another one.

    Eh, sure, I agree that it might not be economically efficient, yet it might solve the issue of the original poster.

    no, it would not lead to any real advancement, thus, being a 3, the original poster would begin to feel anxiety and worthlessness from staying in the same place. I think the best solution would be to branch out try to master one skill at a time and then move on to others. for instance, mastering set work, then mastering lighting, then mastering stage makeup, then mastering acting, then mastering directing, then mastering producing, then mastering licensing movie apparel. if you look at it, this is what all the most famous people do, instead of endlessly perfecting one skill. a skilled soldier is no match for an army.

    Really? Examples?

    Just wondering. I personally prefer the approach you describe, because I enjoy variety. Yet it seems to me that most famous people become such because they are extremely good at something specific.
