Why I left my ‘Dream Job’

While reading this article I thought you were going to come to the conclusion that the “dream job” does not exist. In my opinion, the “dream job” philosophy is a lie. During childhood parents and teachers ask us, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” “Make sure that you find something you love.” There is nothing, even the things that I am passionate about, that I would want to do everyday of my life. I love mountain biking but, if I was forced to do it everyday to earn a living I would begin to hate it because I have other things I love to do also. Unfortunately, in the world today you can’t live without money. The dream is to retire young so you don’t have to trade your time for money. Instead, you can spend your time doing what you actually love; travel, spend time with family, SLEEP, philanthropy.
