If You Have Ten Million Dollars… And A Dream Job

One day.

The clock rings at 7 a.m. You open one eye, hit the snooze button, and sleep on. You repeat the process a couple of times more until you realise you will be late for work. So you scramble your way around the house and got into office in the nick of time… to find yourself totally exhausted and longing for the day to end, when you have not even open your emails yet.

Yet another day.

You open your eyes, looked at the daylight in wonder, and it is not even 7 a.m. yet. Whistling your way getting ready to work, you mentally build a checklist of things to do when you get to work. By the time your Outlook loads your emails, you are all fired up to get your to-do list crossed and checked, and to end the day feeling all contented and productive.

Sounds familiar?

Of course it does. We all have our good and bad days at work. Sometimes we couldn’t wait to get into office, yet on other days we literally have to drag our sorry asses to work.

The question begged to be answered would be – are you doing what you enjoy? If not, why are you doing it? If yes, why were there bad days at work?

An interesting way to look at this is… if you have ten million dollars today, and taking rest & relaxation out of the equation, what would you be doing?

We work because of money. And if money is no longer a factor, it would be deeply insightful to know what you would be doing, apart from resting and relaxing.

For me? I will travel the world in no hurry, and blog about my tales in leisure. I will share what I found on my journeys, so my friends can benefit from my experience. I will make new friends all over the world, and will be proud to call myself a seasoned traveler.

I can work for Lonely Planet. Not because of the money, but because I could.

What would you do if you have ten million dollars? What would your dream job be?
