It’s time for another rousing game of Would Your Rather! Y’all did so good spewing your thoughts on the last one between fame or fortune, I thought it was high-time to pick your brains again. And maybe even get you to stop for a hot minute and really THINK about what you’re doing (or not doing) with your career right now. No harm in that, right?
(PS: If you’re reading this at work right now, you may want to triple check your boss isn’t standing right behind you :))
Okay, here we go… grab your thinking cap and coffee…
Would you rather: Continue working where you are right now – OR – start your dream job tomorrow BUT only get paid 1/2 of what you’re making today? ;)
Haha… you know you want it!! And if you’re already living off 50% of your income, perhaps you can pounce at any time? At least when it comes to the money aspect. If this was “real life,” you’d also have to figure out *how* to catch that dream job too. For the sake of simplicity though, let’s just pretend you snap your fingers and it’s all yours. Even if you don’t now how to snap, like me (#truefact).
If given the option right now, would you accept it? Or are you already DOING what you love and making a generous amount of money at the same time?? You already know the answer I’d choose since I’ve already chosen it, and the funny thing there was that I actually DID take a 50% pay cut! Haha… so perhaps this is one of those “life mimicking art” type deals? ;)
Regardless, we’re here to talk about YOU today. And all your dreams and financial flexibility. If give the option to start your own dream job tomorrow for half the pay, would you jump on it? And what would that job/dream be?
