How can you manage your life?
You don't have to work toward becoming an executive at your company if that's not what you want in life. Instead, think about your own, personal grand goal — the direction you would like to move through life (developing technological innovations, combating global warming, etc.) — and stop doing anything that moves you away from it.
You are most likely to be successful if you choose an area that suits your values, current skills, and potential, and then do something useful within that scope.
As the saying goes, "if you find a job that you love, you won't have to work a day in your life." You can apply this saying to different spheres of your life. Try different activities and gain experience. One day you'll find your grand goal and feel more fulfilled.
