For many people the job they have isnt’t what they dreamed of doing as a child. many have just given up realising those dreams.
Yet recently I spoke to someone in an insurance firm. He did research into customer complaints and to solve problems. He said, as a child he wanted to be an explorer. He said he loved this current job because, though he wasn;t exploring in the darkest jungle or the desert, his job had the same essence of exploration. He genuinely loved it!
So perhaps that is the secret of happiness at work. To realise the essence of our dreams of childhood?
