One way to find the ideal work
The 2006 Edition of Mr Bolles book "What Color Is Your Parachute?" asks an intrieging question in the context of finding the ideal work.
If you could choose three people in the world whose careers and lives and achievements you most envy and would love to emulate, who would you choose?
His book this season is summarized in one word: alternatives. Folk who have alternatives have hope for growth and change. I really appreciate the simplicity and sophistication of Mr Bolles' work.

"I'd rather be funny than wise."
-Attributed to Henry Miller.
The funny thing is, an honor good cheer is actually a powerful medicine for the soul, and so a pretty wise thing in and of itself.
