It isn't about the perfect job; it is about your life's work. Jobs are temporary things, often enticing on paper until you realize that as soon as you get comfortable in your position, it will change, your boss will change, your team will change or your organization will change. Your life's work on the other hand, are activities that you have natural talent for, which energize you and stimulate you and do not change no matter what "job" you happen to be in. Each one of us has specific gifts, talents and experience that make us uniquely qualified to do our life's work. Each choice you make about a job should be in the context of supporting and furthering your life's work.
