You will have to understand that programming is not required throughout your career. When you will grow in your career you will see more of administerial role and less of technical role. It becomes even more important if you are working in a corporate environment. You will learn over the period of time that your people skills will matter a lot if you want to rise high.

Statistics suggest that most of the Software Engineers are out of the field by the time they turn 40. Most times you become the team lead and you will have to manage the group under your leadership. That doesn't mean that your technical skills won't count. The understanding of all the issues from basic level to the advanced stage, will play a crucial role in your career path.

There are variety of roles that you can indulge yourself in. You can move in to consulting industry where you no longer need to work with the technical stuff. An MBA would be helpful in that case to speed up your career progression. A lot will depend on the kind of company you want to work in. The chances of getting more managerial roles are often high in big companies compared to smaller ones.

So, stay relaxed - in any case you are going to move towards non technical positions.
