If a year from now you weren’t in the profession you’re currently in, what would you be in your wildest dreams?

About 5 years ago I was wondering that same thing and I occasionally still do... Do I want to say in education? Do I want to invest 7 more years in another degree for something that I may or may not want to do? I'm also thinking about right now as I plan endings and new beginnings. As much as I struggle with the answer and as much as I change where I'd want to be and what I'd want to be doing I'm still not 100% sure I can answer this question.
I think that rather than asking what I would be doing I'd much rather ask where would I be? In the last couple years I've started to ask whether it's possible to be employed yet not have to worry about where you are to accomplish the job and whether any of the tools already on my arsenal will lend themselves to this kind of work.
A very big part of why I want this is that I want to get more serious about triathlons and being able to train and live in places where races happen is priceless. Another area is that I want to go back to Chile to do Ironman Pucón in 2013 and it would be awesome if i can get there in November and train there for a couple months, work, spend time with friends and the rock that course 😀
