    1. He he he. Many times we’re afraid to make a move. I guess that sometimes we feel it’s too far to ask for our kind of ‘ideal’ career. I think it’s left to each one to create it instead of waiting to land the ideal job. We can move towards the ideal by utilizing our spare time wisely, volunteering etc, in addition to our usual job. Eventually, your hobby will be profitable enough to pay you. And then, you’d sort of never go to work again;)
