    Default Dream job

    I've been thinking about this for a while. If you could pick any job that you could start tomorrow what would you choose?

    I would be a golf club designer/ engineer. Work for taylormade as I would be busy all the time with new product.

    Your turn!

    Professional NBA player. Wouldn't have to be a superstar but that would be nice. I'd settle for a rock solid role player / 6th man.

    I'd be a car design director like Homer Simpson was in that one episode. Except not terrible. I hope.

    I've wondered about this before. Honestly, a lot of the most exciting jobs, I don't think I'd actually enjoy.

    Something like a combo of
    Board member on a couple oil and gas companies, part time trainer/mentor of junior O&G engineers.

    I think this is achievable, I'm actually moving in that direction. Board member is the ultimate "not quite retired" job. Not terribly taxing, but pretty good pay and perks.

    I would like to "tax planner" in Bermuda. Scuba dive in the mornings and work in the afternoons would be a nice life.

    National Geographic photographer hands down.

    Mibz, have you read Chris Hadfield's book? It's mind blowing the process to becoming an astronaut, to even be able to go to space and continuing in that career! A full-on life commitment.

    Already have my dream job.

    Travel around the world, work according to my schedule, taking another degree on the side paid for by the gov't, and make video games at my own studio.

    If you're not already woking your dream job, or working towards it, then you're doing it wrong.
