    Be passionate about your work

    Find what you love and do it. Identify ways you can stay involved and learn more about your areas of interest. Even if you are not happy with what you are currently doing, find a way to identify all of the things you are learning and be grateful for that opportunity. If you talk to most people, especially those working in the tech sector who are a few years into their career, they will tell you how what they are doing now is nothing like what they were doing when they first started working.
