Crazy idea of the day

A few posts back I said that I had sold my business and was now looking for the next thing to do. Yesterday while chatting to some lovely inspiring people, they were asking me what I was going to do next. I said I had no idea and that I felt as though I needed to try out a different job every week. Before you know it, we came up with a master plan:

I attempt to get a different job every week for a year (or at least several months). I would then blog about the experience, possibly turn it into a book and before you know it, they'd be making a film and I'd be a millionaire. Well that's sort of how the conversation went.

But now I'm toying with the idea. It's mad. I'd make no money. It would probably cost me money. Juggling child care would be a nightmare. Getting the jobs would be a bigger nightmare. Doing the jobs would be the biggest nightmare of all. Could I be a policeman? Plumber? Investment banker?

I wouldn't have a clue what to do and would probably spend most of my time bricking myself. Imagine having a new first day at the office every week. Nuts right?

But it could be a fantastic adventure. And I'm a bit of a fan of crazy adventures. Plus it would be a great way of learning about what I want to be when I'm big.  I read a quote today that said: One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure that it's worth watching.  This would make for very interesting viewing.

What do you all think? Crazy but do it. Or crazy you have officially lost the plot mad lady.

Love it Melissa :-) I'm definitely for 'crazy but do it'!

Fab mad idea and one I am sure, a national newspaper would think worth paying for as a weekly story.

Oh do it - definitely. You could try all kinds of things, I am sure. Yes, crazy, but would be fun and I bet the press would pick up on it.

Do it! x

Perhaps more workable if you did a month in each?

Need to have chef in there as one of the options

Hm. I think it's a great idea, but (without wanting to be Mrs Damp Squib) I wonder if you'd spend huge amounts of time doing the admin of finding the job opportunities, getting people on board with what you're doing, bla bla. That could become very tedious.

Fantastic idea - you need to do a reality show too to go along with it! Miss Gracie is right - one of the nationals would LOVE it!
