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
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.
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
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.
