If Money Didn't Matter
"If money didn't matter, what would you do for work?"
I thought about this question for a while before actually getting to a real answer. Sure my first thought was to become a professional scuba diver because I love sea turtles but then I realized I hadn't completely thought that through being that I hate salt water and once I was stung by a jellyfish and that sucked bad enough that I'm not really even a fan of the ocean anymore due to that miserable experience, except on google earth of course. The reality is that no matter what you do there are going to be those not so perfect days and that means the truth is I would probably do exactly what I do right now, my dreams or goals and my hard work landed me where I am today, really the money just keeps the lights on and the fridge full but it can't fulfill that emptiness deep within, you have to pursue that yourself.
I'm sure you're wondering what it is that I do because I would only say something like that if money already didn't matter but that isn't the case. I have a single income home and a 10 year old and I work as a project manager for a telecommunications company but I "do" lots of things. I play pool and golf, I write, I volunteer, I care. I like to create things. Really the list goes on and on but my day job doesn't completely define what I do. I would keep doing what I'm doing because for one, I chose to do it in the first place. It challenges me and technology is always changing and evolving and it happens to be something that really interests me, so I would do it until I felt passionately enough about something else and then I would pursue that because what is the point of this amazingly crazy and wonderful life if we aren't going to live it the way we feel driven to lead it?
