"But then you have to ask why you want to become rich and work in a field that interests you, and whether or not you'd take an alternate route to that goal if one were available. If you don't have an answer for that then it doesn't count."

You need to identify your "embedded life-interests" and then look for a vocation that can fulfill those interests.

This is something I often recommend to friends who are looking for purpose in their career. Never came across more useful career advice.

Don't forget
The Delmore effect when setting goals.
