the adventures of yoshi

on what the future holds…

Posted in Food for Thought by yoshi on January 25, 2011

many of you may think that i’ve got it made, that i’m pursuing my dream job, living the life, yadda yadda yadda. while most of these assumptions might be true (actually, who am i kidding lol, let’s just say, i have no complaints), there’s still a part of me that yearns for something else. what this “else” might be? well, i have yet to find out.

i was hanging out with my friend rich last night at the knicks game and were chatting about work life etc and he asked me, “so what’s your next move?” my answer should have been, “well, i want to become an executive producer.” but for some reason, i blurted out, “i have no idea.”

since then, i’ve been dissecting my thoughts trying to figure out why i didn’t have a solid answer and i came up with the following conclusions (in no particular order):

a. although i love digital production, there’a a part of me that wants to contribute more creatively. i’ve thought about digital strategy which includes everything from marketing, social media, branding, etc. however, this would require me to take a pay-cut, start from the bottom and work my way up… we all know how that story goes.

b. as you know, i’ve been blogging for a long time now, people have asked me why i don’t just make this my profession. its not that easy folks! i have bills, rent, and shopping to pay for! i love blogging, but i’m also afraid i would lose this attraction if it ended up being my job.

c. i’ve always loved being in front of a camera, or being center of attention (mostly when i’m drunk), so why not pursue a life as a tv/viral host or something? again, paycut! but it would be oh so fun! alongside this, i thought about getting more into broadcast production and fortunately enough for me, my work is actually pushing me to work with the broadcast production team, so we’ll see where that goes =)

regardless, i do love my job, don’t get me wrong, i just feel like there is something missing… if only i could combine all of the above somehow and still get paid the same amount lol.

    I think the important thing is that you love what you do. If you love what you are doing now, just stick with it until you don’t, then move on. I’ve always thought the only way to get your perfect job is to just create your perfect job, like opening your own business. I am not sure what that would entail in your situation, but it’s worth a thought 🙂
