    I am wondering for sometime about statmet that my career should be someting that I am passionate about or career that you are good in it. I am kinda passionate about modern technologies like electric cars and autonomus driving, gaming... but I think I am not fit for the job cuz I am not good in programming and understing electrical circuits cuz I finished high school for electrictian but after 4 years I had enough of it so I decided to go to faculty of mechanical engineering? Anybody have same problems ?

    I would say go for what you're passionate about. If you love what you do then you are likely to work hard so over time will improve. If you have the chance to do an enjoyable job over one that just pays you well and you're good at then choose the enjoyable one- job happiness and satisfaction are so difficult to come by

    I'm in the fortunate position (at the moment, anyway) of being able to satisfy both criteria.

    Maybe I am just impressed with that new technology but for work I would rather do mechanical engineering . I just wanted to do robotics because its fun
