Hey, Bob,
There's a big assumption that women would pay you for doing (at least from many posts I've read here imply)what you already do! What's that old saying (usually pointed at women): why buy the cow if you can get the milk for free?!

Don't get nasty, just seeing a humorous side to your comment.....


Welcome, you are going to fit right in here. Bob is really a good guy. He just doesn't want anyone to know it.

Well it may sound a bit over used but I honestly would (and will once I have qualifications!) Work for Medicines sans frontiers, or a like organisation. The only time I am happy in a job is when I am helping others or trying at least. And there are so many suffering people out there to help.

Folks, I'm a cost analyst by day, working for the Defense Department. I'd love more than anything to NOT give my energy to the U.S. military, given what's going on in the world today; unfortunately the job pays more than anything else I can find!

So here I am thinking, if I could do anything I wanted for a living, what would it be?

I dont' know the answer yet (because right now all I want is a vacation and a good night's sleep) so while I'm thinking, ask yourself, if you didn't need the money, what would YOU be doing for a living today?

"Nothing" is not an answer . . . I'm presuming you'd actually want to do something productive!


I hope my answer on your previous post influenced your choice of Av's. That is a beautiful picture.

I would do exactly what I did in this lifetime. Spend 24 (or more) years in the US Army. I tried to go back into the Army when this mess started but they don't want any disabled veterans.

Money has never been important to me. It is true that the people that say that usually don't have any. I plead guilty to that cliche. I have much more personal satisfaction from my career choice than I would ever have from any other career.

HMMMMMMM..If money was not an object what would I do?..I hate to say it, but I would go BACK into the Military (ARMY). There is nothing better than seeing forces from all over the world unite to keep us living in this world we live.

Thegoodlife2005:...............

You posted the most perfect question that transcends every question that could ever be asked about the purpose of life. Like Curly said in "City Slickers" that one thing"...............

If everyone did what they loved to do instead of manufacturing a job they can do, providing material satisfaction and not completeness of purpose,this world would be at peace.................

Mid life crisis is realizing ,purpose in more important that function.....................

I would like to turn your question around.................

If you were paid $100,000.00 a month for doing what you absolutly loved to do, no matter how small..........................

What would you do? ..................

You receive the money because you are doing what you love to do, not because you earned the money, you must love what your doing so much you would do what your doing even if you did not get paid! What would you do?.....................................................


When you know this answer you know why your alive.

I would love to be able to devote all of my time to my clothing designing. Unfortunatly as it is I have to work overtime just to afford the fabric and notions that I need to keep myself in clothes.

if i didn't need the money, i hope i would have that man around to take care of, that wants me to go everywhere with him, be it work for my in-put if he needed it, or for pleasure, to enjoy eachother, i would sell my art and have wine and cheese gallery shows with my artist friends and make a few bucks on my art and donate it to a good charity....

I'd work as a male make-up artist or nail technician at a Beauty Salon and be surrounded by gorgeous women all day!

"If money were no object I would still do the same exact thing i am already doing. I don't think no matter how much money i had i would give up what i do. I'm a pediatric icu nurse and i love my job and my kids to no end. Reading all of your posts it makes me sad to think how many people live their lives working at jobs which do not provide personal gratification or a feeling of fulfillment . My job completes me and although ill never be a millionaire doing it i can't imagine giving up the feeling that what i do each day actually makes a difference in someone's life, not even for the best sushi in Japan or an ocean side beach house..

Madison - I think you have already found the key to happiness. It's not so much the job or the money--it's the passion you live your life with. I think it is great that you enjoy your job so much and not worry about making the most money you can make.

For me, I wish I had the talent to do some jobs that I can't do right now. I would love to be a good singer or musician, or artist. To be able to create something and then get paid to do it would be awesome!

What would you do for a living if money were no object?
Hm...what a thought provoking question! Lol!
1. I would probably build a shelter for abused victims of domestic violence.
2. I would travel via plane or ship to help victims of disasters, offering free medical services.
3. I will build a pediatric hospital.
4. I will invest and sponsor cancer research programs/projects.

Something fulfilling where I'm surrounded by happy positive people.

- help kids
- run my own charitable foundation
(help old people keep up their homes, people who suffer temporory set backs, provide a brokerage for building supplies like Jack's in Denver)
- volunteer
- be in sports - coach little league, cheerleading, etc.
- Get really involved in the schools
- be an aerobics instructor
- be a politician focused on reform - tax system, SS, gov't spending, welfare

Indeed! And I would vote for you!

After years of hard work and struggle I am a teacher. This is what I have always wanted to do, and if I had enough so I could choose. I'd go one step further and open up a chain of schools that focus on the needs of those children who are abused. Child abuse physically and often permanently alters the hippocampus portion of the brain. This schews the ablity of the child. Abuse doesn't just happen in one sector of society, some folks just know how to hide it better than others.

I would spend my time,and money on making sure your wishes are completed,just the way you would want them to be. You seem wonderful,and I'm the type of person that always puts others before myself. You stated your dreams came true,and came through for you,so I will volenteer my money,and time to see that it is all worked out for you..Write to me,and we can discuss how to go about it...I really truely mean it..(smile)
