In a perfect world, our work would keep us stimulated, pay bills, and provide us with a sufficient income to allow a decent quality of life. We would have neither too much nor too little work and it would come in an even flow. Not only that, but our clients would be pleasant and they would pay us on time.
We, in turn, would find it easy to perform our services to public with excellence because we would be able to stay in touch with joy that made us choose our line of work in first place.
