If you were paid 120k to do any job you like, what would you choose?

Imagine if there was a new law that said everybody would be paid the same, exactly 120k, so long as they worked in a full time job (pro rata, for part time), what job would you pick?

I'd stay with the job I've already got: massive pay rise and lots of holidays = win!

i think i'd be tempted to do something outdoors and more physical instead of being sat in front of a computer all day. e.g. forestry work.

So there.

Well yes, of course. But sadly wouldn't be counted as full-time. Even in full season it's next to impossible to do 40 hours a week. Otherwise yes, of course.

Love this...so..are you a teacher?

I'd be a chef. Artist, maybe. Musician and a radio DJ. And, I'd build a school in a place where kids need it.

I don't care what the job would be, I just want it without deadlines, pressure, stress, and ignorant arseholes (otherwise known as clients)
