Ah, Steve, you've done it again. You've brought up a great, thought provoking question on a Friday. I love it. 🙂
I am, very sadly, one of those whose fallen into a role more often than landed one. I'm trying to turn that around and direct myself, rather than lose a job due to a layoff and must desperately look for another.
Yes, there's many people who have inspired me about their work. I'll admit, you, Steve, are one of them. I think I'm at a point in my career where I'd like to travel, meet with clients, and help instruct and train others. It has been my long-time desire to work from home. This coronavirus has let me do it and I'm totally loving it. Another thing I've heard of doing from one of the hosts of the MS Dev Show podcast, is traveling around the country in an RV, going to one job to the next. Although I guess what you do, Steve and this traveling around in an RV share many aspects, so I wouldn't have to do both.
On a humbler note, I want to work at a place where people care about what they do. They care that they make software and applications that users delight to use. The care about following good software design principles and UI/UX principles. I'd be happy to work at a place that does those things.
