Happy Wednesday Everyone!

This is one of those fun question I used to enjoy asking in interviews.  I wasn't using it as a means to make sure that the person said they were passionate about the job we were hiring for.  I liked asking it to learn a bit more about what people were truly passionate about.

So my wonderful friends!  I'm going to ask this one to all of you.  If money was not a concern.  What would you be doing?  Working a dream job? Traveling the world (well maybe not just yet)? Turning a hobby into something more?

I'll get things started.  I'm very passionate about the Atlassian products.  I'm also very involved in the Extra Life community (i.e charity gaming for children's hospitals).  I believe if I money wasn't a concern I would spend more of my time using tools like Bitbucket, Trello & Confluence to help me raise even more funds for Extra Life.  There are definitely some extensions I would love to code and deploy via bitbucket, but I don't have a lot of free time to make much progress on them.

I'd love to hear what the rest of you would be doing in the comments!  Have a great rest of the week!

In no particular order

  • Spend a bit more time with family (mine is scattered mostly along the M4, M5 and M6 in the UK, and visits were infrequent before Covid because a lot of us work)
  • Tinker with computers
  • More travel, definitely.  And more leisurely - rather than fly to, say, Rome for a few days, we'd take trains to get there and back, and spend more time there.  And do a lot of "stop somewhere on the way through for a few days"
  • Tinker with computers
  • Rescue a puppy or dog
  • Something with computers
  • Go back to school, refresh the pre-tech skills I had and go back into counselling (as a volunteer).  Can be very stressful, but it's rewarding.
  • Maybe get into a bit more computery work?

I would buy a large piece of land and open a dog foster/rescue!

Or my own private island.

I would also donate a lot of money to animal rescues.

If earning money wasn't something I had to do then I would start to travel through parts of the US that I haven't seen yet. I would also take my daughters, my husband and my 2 grandkids to 

visit Europe with all of them. I would also take my family to Bermuda for a relaxing vaca.

Thanks for another wonderful Wednesday post, @Jimmy Seddon !

If money and time were not the restricting factors, I would definitely like to travel all over US and Europe with my wife and 2 kids. My wife and daughter are more passionate about traveling than me. So, I would be more than happy to fulfill their wishes.
