There are lots of things your job can be.
It can be your entire passion and world. It can be something you pride yourself on and a part of your identifier. It can be the thing you think about in the evenings and weekends and something you are constantly striving to achieve more in. You can want to move up the corporate ladder and spend lots of time networking and taking courses and certificate programs to learn more about your industry.
Or it can be a means to an end.
Both of these are okay.
