It doesn’t have the highest salary. It doesn’t have the fanciest title. It doesn’t give you a team of 100 people reporting to you. It doesn’t have a clear path to promotion.
It’s where you have the most leverage.
It’s the job that allows you to take who you are right now – your skills, your passions, your knowledge, your relationships – and use them to greatest effect.
Which means of course that the perfect job is the perfect job for YOU, right now, at this moment in your life. It might be a dud for someone else. And someone else’s dream job might be worthless to you.
