If all jobs had the same pay and hours, what would be your favorite job?

A public slave

I would and am regardless of this hypothetical question. Since this is also my current situation, I will say what I am doing.

I am dedicated to music such as guitar and singing. I am writing screenplays, poetry, and answers on Quora. I am also starting a couple of companies, study and trade in the stock market, as well as making crazy but accurate predictions for my stock picks.

I'll do some movies eventually. I am practicing stand up comedy and will always continue to photograph.

I slowly continue my post and finalize it for release. I paint giant paintings of abstract art and this morning I am

I would and am regardless of this hypothetical question. Since this is also my current situation, I will say what I am doing.

I am dedicated to music such as guitar and singing. I am writing screenplays, poetry, and answers on Quora. I am also starting a couple of companies, study and trade in the stock market, as well as making crazy but accurate predictions for my stock picks.

I'll do some movies eventually. I am practicing stand up comedy and will always continue to photograph.

I slowly continue my post and finalize it for release. I paint giant paintings of abstract art and this morning I am finishing a painting that I am drawing of my cat in a nautical theme. I am also writing two scripts for two stories and have practiced guitar for about an hour after my morning bike ride. I also do tarrot card readings.

That is what I am doing and five years ago I only wish I could, but today I do it. Regardless of whether I make money from it or not. I lived the life forced to make for pennies on my salary only to be further repressed in poverty and became an alcoholic, almost killing myself.

Today I let my soul live free. I have to do it to show how sorry I am to have silenced my soul and the gifts it would like to share with this world.

Everyone who writes an answer must do what they write. Everyone's soul has something to say and gifts to give, it is not our place to keep them within ourselves.

Maybe a better way to look at this would be to ask what you WANT to do, if you have a degree in it or not. Then look for ways around the need for a title.

I started at a construction company as a clerk when I was around 18 years old and applied for a project manager / internship evaluator position after I was asked to write the ad for the local job postings section. They accepted me and I discovered that the job also involved some quantitative studies. I fell in love with the QS side! But generally, you need a degree ... which is something I couldn't afford or get accepted as I didn't have any qualifications.

I started at a construction company as a clerk when I was around 18 years old and applied for a project manager / internship evaluator position after I was asked to write the ad for the local job postings section. They accepted me and I discovered that the job also involved some quantitative studies. I fell in love with the QS side! But overall, you need a degree ... which is something I couldn't afford, or get accepted, as I had no qualifications beyond GCSE (if you're in the US ... high school qualifications ).

Fast forward to now, 34 and I'm a full-fledged quantity surveyor ... without a single title or qualification on the subject!

How? I looked for a different angle. While others were earning their degrees and taking courses, I sought out and seized opportunities that were relevant to quantity measurement, without actually assuming the Quantity Supervisor position. I took every opportunity I could in the various companies I worked for to try to incorporate QS'ing into my position. In the end, I had such extensive experience that I was taken seriously for pure QS work without any qualifications at all.

There are certain careers in which a degree IS required ... however, don't be discouraged if having a degree is simply the "norm".

Find out what you WANT to do and find ways to make it happen, with or without a degree!

If you have an idea of ​​things that you enjoy or are good at, or if you already have a direction you want to go message me back, I could help with some ideas :-)

  1. Car sale. Buyers have a preconceived idea that all car dealers are criminals; so they treat you ugly.
  2. Sale of cemetery properties. People refuse to shake your hand because they don't want to die.
  3. Telephone support. Call it a service desk, help desk, or fuck table for trying to help you; it's a thankless job.
  4. Field service ... oh, $ 50 / hour? Let me think about it ... do you pay the mileage or do you come with a fleet vehicle?
  5. Puerto Rican politician. Not even the devil wants them.
  6. California politician. In my conscience, I could not ruin my constituents with "good" intentions.

There are none. Generally, if something pays well, it is risky, which can be stressful, and the barrier to entry is high.

Let's take actors and actresses. The cliché that all Hollywood waiters and waitresses are actors and actresses isn't that far off the mark. For every Tom Hanks or Julia Roberts worth millions, there are many more who are surviving.

Professional football pays a select few very well. And for an athlete with a lot of natural ability, it can be easy for a while. But you give up a lot. More and more we know the price that professional football p

Professional football pays a select few very well. And for an athlete with a lot of natural ability, it can be easy for a while. But you give up a lot. More and more we know the price that professional soccer players pay in the future.

Let's look at a set of careers that used to be high paying in America, manufacturing. Now, most manufactured items sold in the US are made in other countries. These jobs no longer pay well in the United States, where they don't even exist. Now, many services that do not require personal contact are being lost to other countries, due to offshoring. In conscience, I could not recommend to any US citizen that they pursue a career that can be easily deviated.

There are no high-paying careers that are easy and risk-free in the long run. Even things that are illegal and well paid, there is a risk of a new career making little rocks out of big rocks at Leavenworth.

I remember the first time I saw this question a year ago. It seemed like such an easy question to answer: take work 20 hours a week and then keep going because at least you have more time to focus on other activities that you enjoy.

Boy, was I wrong. The fact is, 20 hours at a job you hate makes you think that not only are you working 60 hours at a job you enjoy, it's like 120 hours at least. Every second seems like a minute, every minute seems like an hour, and so on.

By the time you're done with your 20 hours, if you're anything like me, the sheer frustration you'll have will bleed.

By the time you're done with your 20 hours, if you're like me, the sheer frustration you'll have will melt away in that extra time, so you won't really gain anything. If anything, it will get worse and worse until you can't take it anymore.

Take work 60 hours a week; At least in the end, you will feel satisfied, and at the end of the day, that is what you really want.

I can't just pick one thing to do my whole life, so I would list some of the things that I would certainly do.
1. Be a nomad: travel and travel, explore high mountains, sweltering deserts, dense jungles, glaciers and plateaus. Taste each cuisine and interact with people from all the cultures that exist. Traveling is a very humbling experience that allows one to realize how small each of us is in this vast universe. It brings a sense of calm and peace to one's life and I can't imagine a better way to spend my life.

2. Adventure sports: I would love to spend a little time in the mountains.

2. Adventure Sports - I would love to spend a little time mountaineering, paragliding, skiing, deep sea diving, etc. and experience the extremes and the adrenaline rush that goes with it.

3. Learning languages: I am always fascinated by different languages ​​and I would love to learn as many languages ​​as possible. Language speaks a lot about any particular culture and helps to feel different cultures more intricately when interacting with people.

4. Passion & Dream Job Consultant - I came up with this elegant designation from the idea of ​​a startup that I am most passionate about: D. It
came as a realization that most of us (especially in the Indian subcontinent) thrive in an educational system where conventional options like engineering, administration, CA, etc. they prevail and all other professions are despised or students are not aware of them and their scope.
Often times, the profession a student chooses has nothing to do with their interests and passion.
So I would like to start a company that establishes a process that helps students realize what things / topics they are passionate about and then help students make one or more of their passions their profession.

The most important contribution to happiness at work is not related to how much you pay, it will probably still be miserable, even if your job is paying well, but the job is not fascinating. This will definitely come true 10 years from now, when you work like a robot with no passion for your job. All these factors will not only create stress but will also be a reason for depression, so in this case job A will not give you any satisfaction, just stress and depression, on the other hand, job B might not give you a salary . satisfaction, but it will definitely keep you stressed out for

MY DREAM WORK

Run the organization against this stupid rule.

Individuals MUST be able to set / agree with an employer their own hours of work. Therefore, this is a stupid question with no possible answer.

Sometimes when I've been busy and working on a deadline, I've worked 48 hours without sleep. At other times, when everything is under control, I just pick up my golf clubs and play golf with anyone on the tee and many times alone.

Math teacher.

Zero prep time, no essays to grade, most kids hate math so they skip tutorials (makes sense huh?) Pays well, great vacations, no requirement to stay ahead of your field, once you understand the high school material you have for life. VERY easy to get a job.
