Working on Yachts

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Confucius

Pretty powerful words from Confucius – imagine that if you find your dream career you would never have to work another day. Never wake up and have that sinking feeling in your stomach thinking about what faced you in the office. Never get to the end of the working year, and have a hard time thinking what you had accomplished. To many people this may seem like an impossible dream. If you are one of those people, then take a few moments right now to free your mind and think hard about what you want from your dream career.
