If you could be godlike and make up your best possible job, what would it be and why? I'm thinking mine would be some sort of tech repair/troubleshooter. This would require a 4-year Tech degree which I didn't get (I'm a Special Education Teacher.) In this fantasy job, I would have extremely minimal interactions with people. Maybe check in with boss every morning for 20 minutes and that's it. Then, at the repair locations, I would get a synopsis of the problem - which I knew about already. And then kind of insist that I work alone "to focus better." I would have pride in being one of the best in my field over time.

That is a big part of the job I already have.

My fantasy job is 'Starship Captain'.

Novelist.

I get paid for writing but it's corporate marketing type stuff. I'd love to get paid for the fiction I write.

It would definitely have to be remote work. I don't work well in close quarters with others really. I'm a reasonably good naturalist/identifier/photographer/part-time field biologist, and I would love to be able to cash in on that somehow. Unfortunately, the demand isn't very high here. I also don't really have the stamina for many full-time field jobs (due to my health issues). Furthermore, I worry that bringing money into my passion could spoil it for me.

Just as a note:
I've had a horrible time holding down any job for the past two decades.

central banker and owner of every bank and central bank and financial insitution in the world which is good because i would have the sole power to print money in every country in the world and I would control the global financial system.I would also own all the oil and gas and energy assets in the world in my dream job.I would also own lots of real estate like farm and ranch land and hotels/motels.

I mean, as the saying goes, I don't fantasize about _working_.
