I think you should read a load of interesting books, and look at noticeboards to find any trips to seminars or lectures by interesting people. Or even semi-interesting people. That might give you some inspiration as to a career goal.

One thing about careers: I don't know how life works for you, but I work much better with a definite goal in mind. i.e. when I was doing GCSEs, I was set on flying airliners for British Airways, which required GCSEs, hence I studied. When I was doing A-levels, I decided that airlining wasn't ideal for me, but design engineering would match my skills. Some sort of semi-definite goal helped motivate me through A-levels. And now, from my lofty vantagepoint as a first-year mech. eng. student, I'm thinking that working for a flight simulator manufacturer (the companies that make the flight sims for airlines and flight schools) would be a great job. I've not got a high expectation that it will still be my goal when I graduate, but it's motivating me now, which is all I need my goals to do.

Moral of the story: Find a motivating goal and work towards it, but don't worry about changing the goal as you progress!
