OK. Here's the deal. My new job is at my old job. I'm sitting at the same desk, surrounded by the same people but the work is entirely different. What I previously crammed into weeknights and weekends is now visible on my computer screen at work for all to see. I'm getting paid to do what I have done for free. I am living my dream.

Hugh McLeod calls this marrying of passion and profession an "evil plan."

Chris Brogan and Julien Smith refer to it as hacking your job.

While those descriptors came into my world after I manifested my dream job, they best capture the tremendous coup I appear to have pulled off.
