What makes a dream job?


You don’t have to get all the ingredients of a fulfilling career from your job.
It’s possible to find a job that pays the bills and excel in a side project; or to find
a sense of meaning through philanthropy and volunteering; or to build great
relationships outside of work. Einstein had his most productive year in 1905, while working as a clerk at a patent office.


So what does a fulfilling career looks like to me?

  1. Work I am good at.
  2. Work that helps others.
  3. Engaging work that lets me enter a state of flow (freedom, variety,
    clear tasks, feedback).
  4. Supportive colleagues.
  5. No major negatives like long hours or unfair pay.
  6. Work that fits your personal life.
