Question of the Week #297

If you knew that devoting yourself to an all-consuming occupation–music, writing, acting, business, politics, or medicine–for 20 years would make you one of the best in the world at it, would you? If so, which would you choose?

Absolutely, I would. And of those listed, I’d definitely go with writing.

I already love to write and if I could do that for a living, I would do it in a heartbeat. And to do it for 20 years and become one of the best in the world? Why not?

That was an easy one to answer… Well, it was for me. But I want to know about you… How would you answer this week’s question? Let me know your thoughts down in the comments!

*The Question of the Week can be found in The Book of Questions by Gregory Stock, Ph.D.

  1. You are a good writer, pursuing it to a greater degree than you do now would make good sense. As for me, the all-consuming-occupation stipulation causes me to say no. There are too many important parts of my life that would be neglected and missed out on. That would be a tragedy.

  2. I always loved math, so to have done utility billing 25 out of the 30 years I worked before retiring was great. Of course, there were some ups and downs as I think there would be with any career. If any of your readers are young enough to make a career change to have their dream job, definitely go for it. Life is too short to be miserable going to work everyday!
