What’s the secret? How do people end up in their dream jobs? And what do they actually do when they are there?
It’s a question that has always plagued me. Look around the place you live. How many people live there? How many businesses and office buildings line the streets? What on earth are all those people doing, and how did they figure out that it was the thing to do? Seriously – what can possibly fill the time for the approximately 3 billion people worldwide who have jobs of some sort?
So, I am starting this lovely blog to figure it all out. Expect to see interviews with people who have their personal dream job. These interviews will be broken into two parts:
- Who do you want to be today?, where we’ll talk about what it is that people actually do at their jobs. What do programmers do first thing in the morning when they get into the office? Is being an engineer all about math? What about photographers? Or gunsmiths? Or the local owner of the comic book store?
- How did I get here? posts will cover the individual journeys that people took to find their dream jobs. How do you do it? Do people just get lucky and fall into their dream jobs, or is there a clear set of things that they’ve done to get where they want to be?
I don’t know the answers to these questions. But I want to find out.
