We all have interests in our lives that we’re not pursuing. My joke is that I’m the world’s biggest dilettante. I;ve sold a piece of artwork. I’ve played music for money. I’ve one other things, but that’s not my job. It’s stuff I do on the side and I am sure that all of us have things like that. Maybe you do arts or crafts or gardening or landscape design or whatever in our own lives. Think about it. Maybe, well if I really like doing that why can’t I make that part of my job. If you like being outdoors and you like gardening and you have a facility for it and your knowledgeable in it — or you feel you could become very knowledgeable in it with just a little bit of work — then why are you working in an office 9 to 5 punching keys on a computer? You might begin to realize right away that that’s probably not the best place for you. Why not investigate that interest in gardening and see if maybe I could do a job that has something to do with that?
