    Assuming good benefits were involved, If you were offered twice your current salary to be a janitor and clean toilets, would you do it?

    Directly, even though I would be the best paid toilett cleaner in the world 🙂
    But my responsibility would be way down 🙂

    No !!
    You can rephrase the question though.

    Would you dance naked in Times Square with a rose in your mouth for $10 million ?? 😀

    I would do that most probaly also 🙂 Tough it would cost me my Tourist visa, given what I hear about the US views on nakedness 🙂

    I would keep doing the job I currently do even for half my current earnings.

    Sure but with ten mil you can go anywhere ELSE you want on the planet and live the good life there. Or travel forever.

    I make about 40 an hour now, so 80 bucks an hour to clean toilets? Give me the mop right now! That would be 160,000 a year. You can bank a lot of money with that much income.

    If by this you mean that your current job gives you such little sense of purpose, worth, and personal reward that you'd walk away from it merely for some extra money, then I do not envy you. You have my sympathy. If you mean that you are in such financial poor dire straits that you'd feel compelled to give up a personally rewarding job merely for some extra money, then, once again, I do not envy you and you have my sympathy.

    Thanks, buddy!
    I love what I do: finding unique ways to serve people.
    There is a ceremonial ritual enrichment that accompanies those who serve, and if I could be paid twice what I make now and serve people in a meaningful manner... What's not to like?

    A pure heart sees every toilet a potential throne.

    That would cost em 300k a yr. for a 40 hr. work week. Doubt that'll happen. It take it tho. Way less strenuous than my job.

    Actually I would do this but only if it was bot captured on photo of video; I.e. It was truly a one off.
