Finding the Job you've always dreamed of

OK, I know that this is not really Web2.0, Business, Marketing or Communication related, but I found a very inspiring story about an executive finding a job of his own dreaming.
I'm a lucky guy who has an interesting and fulfilling job, but paving the road for the career of your dreams is something that everyone should get used to, especially in this turbulent times.
His approach was a good one for tough times, so I wanted to pass it along to you. The part of the story that I like is the attitude of the hunter while trying to find a job:
"I visualized what I wanted this position to be like and wrote a list of bullet items about the job and my ideal company."
I completely agree. Each of us, especially in this flat and continuously evolving world, can work to shape a position where he fits perfectly. If you mix your technical skills, leadership attitude, management style, personality and many other qualities, the end result will be a great job.
I'm not saying that you need to leave your current employer or to be fired, I'm just reminding myself that we have a part in our future. Maybe not in every facet, but in some aspects we can. I'd like to conclude with this quote:
"All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible." - Thomas E. Lawrence
It's not easy to dream when you have a family to sustain and you are unemployed, but it's not the time to give up!
