I have had lots of different jobs, and I learn new things doing every one. I guess if I had not discovered science I might have ended up working all day in an office – I can think of nothing more boring (I guess someone has to do it, but I would rather it not be me).
I suppose the short answer is it has made me happier than I would otherwise be.
@wendy01: I think when you find the area of employment that you really love, it doesn’t feel like work. I’m lucky enough to be working in an area that I am passionate about – I feel satisfied that my hard work will make a positive difference in the lives of working dogs and the people they work for and that makes me feel great about what I do. I think if I were in a job I didn’t find as satisfying I might not be as happy or as hard working as I am doing what I love.
By giving me a sense of fulfilment, paying me reasonably well, stimulating my mind, allowing me to go on trips to other places, and letting me interact with other amazing and passionate people. The downside is working really hard at times to make it all happen, meaning less time for other things.
Good question! My job has given me a very particular mindset about how I approach any problem (whether at work or not). And it has also allowed me to meet many very smart and interesting people. And of course, very recently it brought me from the States to Australia — that is quite an exciting adventure that my family and I have embarked on!
Great question @wendy01,
Thats somethings I’ve never thought of before. But now that you force me to I guess I’ll try 🙂
All of my jobs have allowed me to look at life very differentlty to the world around me and people within in. I tend to think more about why something may have happened instead of just accepting that it did. I can also notice that people without a science background seem not to care so much about these things (not everyone of course).
My military career taught me a lot about people. All over the world people seem to ‘need’ the same things and no matter what country they come from or religion they are part of, they are all the same when it comes to family and friends.
Thank you all!
