Quite often the question “What is your dream job?” gets asked. Invariably, people have two typical answers to the question; they either say that their dream job was a part time job when they were 16 (e.g., working in a café) or they say that their dream job is some kind of impossible job that neither fits their current life nor really exists (e.g., help indigenous people in Chile).
Both these answers are very depressing, because they both highlight that we are not living our dream lives (far from it), but, more worryingly, making silly compromises that lead to doing completely different job to our dream job.
Whenever someone asks me the question, I say “My next job”. This way I am saying that I am living the dream.
