I never imagined I would leave college with a bachelor of arts in English and end up writing software for a large financial institution. What did I think I would do? After various internships throughout my junior and senior years I assumed my path was set in marketing or advertising. Was that my dream job? No, most definitely not.
Software wasn’t a dream either, but the year was 1999 and Y2K resulted in a need for talented developers. After two interviews with that financial institution my career trajectory changed completely. Software wasn’t my dream either, but I realized that a high paying job could help fulfill other desires.
Those wishes included owning a beach house and becoming a stay-at-home parent, but now, as I stay home with two young boys, I try to envision my future and realize I don’t seem to dream anymore.
If you feel like you are going through the motions of life, but not really enjoying it this book might be for you. If you feel like every day is the same as the next, but you aren’t sure how to achieve anything better this book might be for you.
If you had a choice how would you spend your days? I’m not just talking about professions and careers, but the larger aspects of your life too. What excites you? What would make you hop out of bed each morning with a smile on your face and a lightness in your soul?
If you have a dream you want realized or simply want to dream again this book might be for you.
