Are You Working in Your Dream Job?
My guess is you are probably not working in the profession you always dreamed of. We all have or had some sort of dream job in the back of our minds.
Myself, I always wanted to be a comedy writer. If you've read any of my articles on our website 1037theloon.com you can probably see why that never happened. My second choice would have been a stand up comedian. But, you know, I got married (3 times) and had kids, so taking a gamble like that when you have real life responsibilities can make chasing your dream extra difficult.
When you were growing up, what was your dream job? I think every guy as a kid dreams of being a fireman or policeman. But as your world gets bigger and more rounded, your options tend to multiply.
I truly envy those people that followed their dream. My very smart wife always drummed into her kids' heads "When you get older, don't ever have to say, I wish I would have".
Oh, I should probably state that I do love what I'm doing now but it was never my dream to be in radio. But as the wise say, "You are where you are supposed to be".
What was your dream job and if you aren't there, what stopped you?
