What If We All Had One Job

Updated on November 8, 2017

To Make Ourselves Useful

With no wishes or wants

We are a tool

To help mankind

There are problems all over the world

Our job is to find a problem we can fix

Our whole life is dedicated to making that problem disappear

If that problem creates another problem

It is our job to solve that problem too

So in the meantime we can have fun enjoying our life

Traveling around the world

Meeting people and helping them solve their own problems

Every person has to pick their own problem

It can take years to find the right problem

Once you pick your problem it is yours for life

The solution is yours too

You can inquire for help

If people choose to help it is up to them

Maybe they will

Maybe they won't

Every day you go to work

Just like a real job

Discussing the issues and the development

People all over the world come to you for answers

There is a lot of responsibility but also great pride

At the age of twenty one you have to decide

What problem you pick

The search is on

Checking the data bases around the world

To see if someone else has picked your area of expertise

If no one has

You get a problem in a gold lettering typed with your name on it

Dated and from that day on your problem is your life's long ambition

So with no time to waste

I have picked my own problem

It is how to make people think

So many people don't want to make any effort

They just live their life on auto pilot

I have seen how they get easily bored

Even the greatest things and the happiest moments only last a short time

I believe somewhere in their life they stopped trying

Going through the motions

If you find yourself

In a fog

In a daze

Not sure what to do next

Give me a ring

I am here twenty four seven

To do my best

Think, think, think

That is my life long dream

      Robert Sacchi Would you have a better chance of getting jobs in your local area? What is it that you love to do? You definitely have so much drive and a positive attitude. Things I value the most. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have an amazing night.

      I haven't made my first $50 with HubPages. Moneywise I didn't much better with the defunct Yahoo!Voices. Maybe that's why they closed down. Only one person ever bought anything through my Amazon links. Maybe you will have better luck with that.

      It is with great difficulty. There are the ones where they want you to sell stuff. Lately it is to be some kind of uber driver. I remember when I had to do a job search in 2011/12. Looked at 188606 Jobs. Applied For 1805. The job I ended up with was 40% of my previous job. It was far worse than when I was job hunting in 1993/94.

      Have you had great success in finding jobs online? How do you weed out the good from the bad? I get excited when I read so many emails. Everything looks so good. Have you made any money on Hubpages from all your writings? I write for fun now and one day I hope to turn my writings into a book of poems. I appreciate all your comments and support. When work gets busy it takes me a while to get back to reading and writing. I miss it so much. I have to make sure I keep my priorities straight. Thank you again for the wonderful connection between beauty and life. Have a great day.

      One of the disadvantages of doing a job search is getting a flood of emails, most of which are trash.

      Robert Sacchi It is amazing how quickly those e-mails add up. I have quite a few too. I battle with myself what to save and what to send to trash. I am always afraid I will need it after I trash it. I get confused on what to do. So I abandon the whole situation. Hoping to return with new perspective and a great new plan. Thank you for reading and adding to the excitement of my day. Friday is finally here. Have a great weekend.

      I have 840 emails in my inbox, so I understand about taking a while to get back to people.

      Robert Sacchi Every day of our lives we live the most amazing life and with that life we are given the greatest opportunity of all. To help one another and make a difference in every day that we live. We can live by example and set the bar high so people will be so happy to cross it or live up to high expectations. Then once and awhile lower the bar when nobody is looking and see if there are any changes. In the long run, we will all be happier and full of more joy than we never did expect. Thank you so much for all your input and wonderful comments. It took me a while but I made it back. I had the honor of seeing your question and reading it many times. That gave me time to make a more precise and clear answer. Have a lovely day.

      Gypsy Rose Lee I think as we get older and begin to live our life we forget what we can give to the world and do so much more taking. If we are reminded daily we will accomplish so much more with so much less. Thank you so much for reading and finding ways to make our world better for everyone not just a select few. Michael-Milec When anyone devotes time and energy to any problem surprising things happen. With bigger problems like cancer, obesity we could work in groups and see how much progress can be made. The people are the experts not big companies. Give credit where credit is do. Are there any problems that you would love to take a crack at? Thank you so much for reading and sharing.

      Uncompromising awesome. You have exposed basic responsibility for every person to learn living life without creating problems - as I understand it. some problems are very difficult to solve ( Cancer/ obesity ...) I love life without problems. Working on "problem free" life daily. Then again if a problem comes across my path most of the time I let it go...

      All of us being totally different and giving the world different offerings is what makes it all so exciting.
