I went to school for civil engineering, and loved the iterative technical problem solving aspect of it during school.
Once I got into the workforce, it became all about implementing standards/manuals that were developed 10-20 years ago. It wasn't innovative, and I felt stuck and stagnant. I was no longer tackling complex iterative & innovative problems, and rather just reading and employing standard over and over and over again.
I craved the dopamine bursts from problem solving! Started self-teaching on the side, and after a few months decided it was time to leap!
