A response to the Daily Post’s Daily Prompt: Money for Nothing
If you’re like most of us, you need to earn money by working for a living. Describe your ultimate job. If you’re in your dream job, tell us all about it — what is it that you love? What fulfills you? If you’re not in your dream job, describe for us what your ultimate job would be.
For me this is really a question of, “If money were not an issue, what would you do as an occupation?”
I wish we could all abandon money and the current structure of the world but I know that my lofty ideals do not match up to the world and that they never will, well, at least not in my lifetime.
I wish to be a mediator of knowledge. I am not particularly gifted in any aspect of life and I can accept this. What I cannot accept is people whose wisdom and intellect far surpass mine but do not realise their potential. I wish to be a mediator of knowledge in that sense. I want to show people what it is that makes them wise, what it is that they know and how they can improve themselves.
It doesn’t matter where this occupation, or rather, this hobby, takes place. The fundamental principle of allowing someone to realise that they have the mental capacity for things far greater than I is what I want to be doing.
