You could begin by examining career choices for yourself, using your skills to accumulate and evaluate the available information. You might want to make a list of your strengths, interests, inclinations, habits, past experiences, etc, and sort them out, taxonomizing and measuring the strength of each entry: creative? People-oriented? Luxuries a necessity? Forward or backward ego balance? Patient or impatient? In other words, use your considerable reasoning skills and self-assessment confidence to set some long-range goals for yourself, based not on temporary and emotional criteria, but on the very logic you pride yourself on. What are your criteria? Money? Popularity? Fame? Security? World change? etc. And use your intelligence to distinguish between work and life-work. In the abstract, you should seek happiness with your skills. Use them to find your path to happiness. The is a mild, only mild, distinction between physical labor and mental labor (mind-work)—bit id you are truly confident in your mental powers, maybe you should concentrate on those careers requiring a good mind to start with—a “professional” career as they are called: architecture, law, medicine, engineering, education? Art, literature, dance? First step: know thyself.
