Did you do a PhD that you are proud of? That you loved working on? That has helped you in your career going forward?

How did you get there?
I've decided to finish my PhD. I've been stumbling around on topics, and not sure what kind of topic would be best. I know that I don't want to stay in my field (of social science), but I'm going to get the credential and then move onto something else.
If you were happy with your PhD, how did you choose your topic? Why was it a good fit? Why are you proud of it now? How has your topic helped you going forward?
Advice, from people at all stages (during PhD, post-doc, faculty, PhD and in industry, PhD and unrelated field, etc.) would be much appreciated.
