A recent conversation with friends turned to the topic of dream jobs. What would you do if money, education, and plain old practicality didn’t play a role in your working life? Some of the answers intrigued me. Storm chaser. App developer. I felt as though everyone in the room was revealing his or her secret identity.
I was also surprised at the variety of answers. I always assume that my dream job will be the same as every other person’s because I just know that I’ve picked the most amazing job a person could have — travel writer, obviously.
We spend childhood dreaming about what we’ll do as adults, but most of us set those ideas aside when we reach adulthood because paying the bills takes priority. Even when I had planned to switch careers, I didn’t pick my dream career, just a different job that I thought I would enjoy and would provide me with some financial security.
I’m curious: What’s your dream job? Does anyone out there already have a dream job?
