Has anyone drastically changed their career to something in a completely different field? I'm currently working in finance after sort of falling into it after Uni and wanting some job security after turning down some jobs in the City (did an internship at an investment bank who laid off 5,000 people during my time there). My current job isn't fullfilling at all and while I've got the ACA qualification under my belt, the thought of spending the rest of my career/life auditing accounts or working accounts makes me feel ill. I've been thinking about pilot school to become a commercial pilot. I've set aside some cash to go towards the huge training fees but I don't know whether it's a bit late in the day for that specific career (I'm 28). I'd love to do it though, but I'm currently on decent money and would initially see me probably half my salary for at least 3-4 years. There's a lot in the whole "you only live once" mentality but then again, fucking it up from a relatively comfortable position doesn't make it any better.
