What do I expect of myself for the next 10 years?

I always come across this Q when I go for interview. I don't know how to answer this, because I still uncertain what is my real interest.

Should I stay with the government? I still unable to get the place I want, need to travel everyday and waste large sum of money for toll & petrol. Besides this, there are many more problems that outsiders don't understand, unless you are currently with the government. However, there are lots of uncountable benefits too, for instance is the flexibility in applying for holidays.

If I quit, shall I join retail? Currently working as part-time pharmacist at one of the community pharmacy. I find myself really dislike being a retail pharmacist... I couldn't imagine myself working at this line for the next 10 or 20 yrs.

Shall I join private hospital? I still think if I were to work as a clinical pharmacist or hospital pharmacist, government setting will be a better one. How about pharmaceutical companies? Wanna work as regulatory pharmacist but so far no offer yet. And I'm not sure how good is it to be a pharmacist who always look at act and regulation books + documentation.

I don't know what is my future... help~

you forgot one thing, you can also get married with a rich guy and no need to work anymore.

workinng for goverment means you get pension when you retire next time, quite a nice thing to have.

i didn't opt for pension scheme, i have chosen epf scheme, so no pension when i retired.
