Ready for Right Livelihood?
Take the Changing Course Quiz 

A job change — even a career change — is one thing. But changing course by redirecting your energies so that you're living the life you truly want is quite another. And, it's not for everyone.

"The saddest people out there," says Dilbert cartoon creator Scott Adams, "are the ones who are living for their two-week vacation every year. If you're living for those two weeks, then you have to start changing something."

What about you? Are you ready for so called right livelihood?  Answer these 10 simple questions and find out! (After you take the quiz, read the 12 Warning Signs of Health)

The Quiz

    You know there has to be more to life than this (staff meetings, high stress deadlines, re-engineering, commuting... you fill in the blanks).
    You crave a job that allows you to spend more time with the people who matter most.
    You'd love a schedule that fits with your own time clock and NOT someone else's.
    You can't wait to say so long to those 'Sunday night blues.'
    You want more than a paycheck — you want a life!
    If you never wear another business suit (tie, pair of pantyhose, etc.), it will be too soon!
    How you feel about your work matters to you.
    When your alarm clock goes off in the morning, you pray it's Friday.
    You've always wanted to be your own boss.
    You believe that life is too short to work at a job that doesn't feed your spirit.

What did your answers tell you?
When it comes to something as important as your life, there are no 'right' or 'wrong' answers.  Only what is right for you.

But, if you found yourself agreeing with most of the statements, maybe it's time to consider  Changing Course. Click here to browse the Live Your Dream store.
