The Northwest Earth Institute offers a variety of wonderful classes that can help you focus on what matters to you. I took part in one of their Voluntary Simplicity classes several years ago, and still benefit from it! I kept the workbook and often re-read it for inspiration. I also recommend the book with a similar name, Voluntary Simplicity: Toward a Way of Life That Is Outwardly Simple, Inwardly Rich. Another great book is Your Money or Your Life: Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Achieving Financial Independence.
Some career choices that I strongly encourage people to investigate are naturopathic medicine and renewable energy related. Those of you who are drawn to healing know who you are. I encourage you to learn about naturopathic medical programs.

One of my readers recommends the Wind Energy Technology program at Redstone College in Denver. I would also like to put in a word for the Renewable Energy Technology program at Columbia Gorge Community College, in my hometown of The Dalles, Oregon.
There are several other careers that I can think of that can help you live your values, for instance organic farmer and politician. What do you do? What is your dream job? Are you living your dream, if not what can you do to make it a reality?
