Key elements to satisfaction at work
For me to be happy in my life's work there are several key elements that need to be there. I need to have my freedom. I can not be caged like an animal or babysat like a child. There needs to be profitability so that I can afford a reasonable lifestyle, aggressively save, and generously give. I need to be around people I respect, admire, and appreciate. Those I am around need to speak well, care about their appearance, and seek to be real. I need to have new experiences and opportunities to grow personally. I can handle routine to some extent but I do like to improve and change for the better. I do not want to be with people who are lording it over me, who are excessively picky, or who expect me to be someone I am not. In my work, I need to be out of the spot light and not expected to entertain. Email would be the primary way of communicating with only a few phone calls or meetings. Things I care about are nature, doing the right thing, finances, the next generation, and technology.
Do you know of a place with these key elements?
