A sport you have had to stop for injuries or university/working reasons is a good point to deep dive.

Honestly, I really cannot think of anything I'm really good at but give up persisting in doing it. I mean typically what I really good at are things that I have passions so I might direct my ways of doing them regarding the changing situations but I won't say that I never want to do anymore. For example, the first thing pops up my mind is leaving the academic area and managing to become a qualified consultant. However, I adapt what I've taken from academic training to the new field. I appreciate my subject brought me here and still have passions developing it while in a different way.

financial reporting. it is fundamental but  still is an intermediary between the raw data and statistics and the actual decision making. it is in between the real life and insights. too standardised.
