Testdrive Your Dream Job in Paris (2) Document Transcript

  • 1. Testdrive  Your  Dream  Job  in  Paris  (2)  By  Peter  de  Kuster    The  Start  of  Your  Journey  in  the  Rodin  Museum    It  is  a  fact  that  most  people  hate  their  jobs.  It  feels  sometimes  like  the  Gates  of  Hell  of  Dante  in  the  Rodin  Museum.          They  would  rather  be  doing  something  else  –  anything  else.  It  doesn’t  have  to  be  that  way.      What  if  I  told  you  that  you  would  never  have  to  work  another  day  in  your  life?  Would  you  be  interested?  When  you  find  the  right  fit  in  a  career,  it  no  longer  feels  like  work.  You  wake  up  every  day  excited  about  how  you  earn  your  living.  This  perfect  harmonizing  of  your  talents,  skills  ,  personality  and  work  style  creates  a  passion  and  a  desire  as  well  as  a  feeling  of  contentment  that  is  worth  more  than  gold.      It  can  all  be  yours,  if  you  make  the  Testdrive  your  Dreamjob  in  Paris  and  apply  its  principles.  Finding  contentment  in  your  career  is  a  lot  like  looking  
  • 2. for  a  hidden  treasure.  Using  a  map,  you  embark  on  a  journey,  an  adventure  in  search  of    yourself.    The  point  is  that  there  isn’t  a  rational  ‘best’  solution  waiting  for  you.  The  Testdrive  your  Dream  Job,  the  pursuit  of  the  treasure  is  the  reward.  The  hidden  treasure  is  your  passion.  Because,  when  it  comes  to  a  Dream  Job,  there  is  no  fixed  job.  It  is  all  a  search.  Enjoying  the  search  is  what  success  is  all  about.        Our  hero  from  Midnight  in  Paris  meets  his  first  ‘guide’  in  search  for  his  calling  in  a  tour  in  the  Rodin  Museum.  He  is  contemplating  his  life..    Through  the  centuries  and  generations  people  have  made  Testdrives  in  their  Dream  Jobs  in  Paris.    For  architects,  artists,  writers,  designers,  cooks,  actors  is  Paris  a  place  for  professional  inspiration.  Almost  every  one  of  them  has  come  away  invigorated,  and  more  determined  than  ever  to  make  his  or  her  dream  job  happen.    
  • 3. After    years  of  fantasy,  something  about  living  the  job  for  just  a  few  days  (or  midnights)  empowered  them  to  take  action.  Partly  it  was  the  learning  –  the  concrete  knowledge  they  gained  about  their  desired  business.  Partly  it  was  the  mentor  who  held  their  hand,  boosted  their  confidence  and  offered  ongoing  help.          In  search  for  your  passion.  In  your  dream  job.  In  your  life.      Partly  it  was  the  contacts  they  made,  which  made  taking  the  next  steps  easier.  But  above  and  beyond  those  practical  things,  there  was  something  else:  the  Testdrive  Your  Dream  Job  awakened  and  energized  something  deep  inside  them.  It  connected  them  with  the  truest  part  of  themselves,  a  part  that  had  previously  felt  dormant  and  that,  once  awakened  refused  to  be  ignored.                                                Our  hero  in  Midnight  in  Paris  is  finally  able  to  tell  his  story    
  • 4. You  know  –  if  you’re  considering  a  dream  job  –  that  the  push  toward  a  dream  career  is  not  just  about  how  you  spend  your  working  hours.  It’s  about  having  work  that  matches  your  values,  that  feeds  instead  of  exhausts  you,  that  doesn’t  require  you  to  leave  your  priorities  at  home  and  check  your  heart  at  the  door.          The  Rodin  Museum.  A  great  place  to  start  getting  a  new  perspective  on  your  life  and  your  dream  job.      When  we  imagine  a  dream  job,  we  imagine  a  job  in  which  we  are  fully  ourselves,  in  which  are  hearts  and  minds  are  equally  engaged.      This  engagement  is  what  people  feel  in  the  Rodin  Museum  looking  at  the  work  and  life  of  Rodin.  This  is  what  they  feel  while  making  their  Testdrive  in  their  Dream  Job.    And  once  they  reconnect  with  the  deepest  sense  of  self,  few  are  willing  to  return  to  their  status  quo.
