My favorite question to ask in boring meetings is "If you had the choice between having any super power you wanted, but being stuck on earth, or not having super powers, but being able to travel anywhere in the universe, which would you pick?"
I would totally travel all over the universe in a heartbeat. My dream would be to have my brain implanted in a little space ship and drive around seeing new stuff foreve until I got to the edge of the universe. Then I would want to see if there were other universes.
But in the real world, I will set a course that typically lasts several years at a time. During school, I was stuck on one course so I could support my kids, but now in the workplace, i typically will stay in a position for 2-3 years-until I have created as much change as I possibly can-then I will move on to something new.
If I cant change the job-I change directions in my mind. I am sort of stuck in my job as they pay me well, but I am about to start taking classes and perhaps get an MS in HR, so just the potential for a different path brightens my mood.
At home I change stuff all the time. Yesterday I went around painting my doors blue. It made me happy as it was new and different. Hysterically, it will make me happy again in a couple of months when I paint it some other color as it will then be new or different.
