Every year I ask myself if I'm doing what I want to do, being what I want to be.  I take numerous career assessments, psychology tests, and read various self-help books on career development.  I read somewhere that a person on average changes career five times during  his/her lifetime.  One management professor once said that you can change the industry and the function but not at the same time.   In the US, my ex-colleagues job-hop as a way to increase their pay.  The whole world of work is changing, towards more flexibility.
