The ideal job. The ideal position. The ideal career. We talk about these things, we want these things, we strive for these things.
I do, of course. I’m big on life/career integration. I know many other people who strive for these things as well . . . which of course I do because I meet people like myself.
But I hear all these talks about what people are doing to find the perfect job. I hear pay rates and statistics on what they want. I hear bits and pieces of abstract discussions.
As we quest for the perfect career I think we can miss an obvious question: what is really going to make us happy in our careers?
