Dream Job

When I log into my online banking, one of the many security questions the site asks me is What is your dream job?

I have mixed reactions to this question.

Sometimes, it makes me sad. Are there really that many people out there who aren't doing what they dream or hope to be doing? We spend the majority of our lives at work or commuting to work. Life is too short to be spending it doing something that we don't enjoy or feel passionate about.

Sometimes, this question encourages me. It reminds me that I have a dream and it pushes me to work harder at reaching that goal.

Sometimes, the question makes me feel silly. Dreams. Bah. Those are things that fantasies are made of and we all know fantasies aren't real.

How does this question make you feel?

  1. I would have to feel the same as you to some extent. On one hand, I would feel like I was cheating myself for not actually realizing my dream job, on the other hand I would wonder what I would be cheating my family out of in pursuit of my dreams.
