Apparently 'two out of three Britons' (I suspect there's some statistical massage going on there!) say they would rather choose the low-stress ideal of running their own B&B than pursue high-powered fancy careers like being an astronaut. And I'm with them...
I have several friends who have given their all working for the man, or the company, often at great personal sacrifice. Of course when you can make your job sound important and there are lots of big numbers in the salary it all seems such a good idea. But then the wind changes and you're unceremoniously dumped - or worse, you find yourself looking back over a long career and asking how you made the world a better place, exactly.
The article which produced the startling statistic was in several national dailies this week; this piece is from the Express. It's interesting that although money is very important (of course it is) there are other powerful motivators shaping our career ideals and choices.
The important thing - in my humble opinion - is to take control. Decide what you want out of life, and find a way to make it happen. Whether that's being an astronaut or a B&B owner, is up to you. But beware - the application process for astronauts is a bit more tricky.
