What is a Compelling Career Anyway?
Compelling careers often have complex origins that reject the simple idea that all you have to do is follow your passion. (Location 295)
What is a compelling career, anyway?
IMO, a good career isn't fully replicable or fully automatable to the point that anyone could be hired.
Working artists fit this bill, because they found a way to create something and then turn it into a profitable medium of their own volition. Artists also usually get people to say "I really like your work! It helped me in a non quantifiable way!"
Scientists do this as well by prodding at the edges of reality with hypotheses and seeing what creativity can create within that realm.
So I guess in some a compelling career is one that is creative while as well being attuned to reality.
