    Something in the medical industry - so I'd always have a job that pays well.  I got to do what I wanted to do professionally, but the pay in newspapers really is the pits.  Still I miss it every day - except pay day.

    My longterm interests of Creative Writing, Public Speaking and Self-understanding and my love of teaching as it is today, if I could have my life over I would leave the first forty-one years of it as is.  They were filled with life and adventure.   But those years I spent in a dull office job in the public service between age 41 and age 59 I would spend in university studies with the intention of getting those letters behind my name, e.g.  PH.D majoring Psychology, I think.  In other words, a decade or so in 'Academia.'

    Tertiary qualifications open doors in that they say to others this person has 'credibility.' (even if your as thick as two short planks)   As a man who left school at fourteen, and studied later in life but never went to university, I feel just a little handicapped when I put my name forward as a speaker to professional bodies.   Even though I've written books, spoken to hundreds of audiences and tens of thousands of people outside of the professional and business world, I'm of the opinion that had I had a university educaiton rather than just the 'School of Hard Knocks,' I'd be regarded as one of the best at what I do.   This would bring me the work I love rather than me having to chase it down.

    I wouldn't change the career I've chosen but I'd change the order of events leading up to it.  I'm a retired pastor who has served three churches over 43 years. I'm now happily employed at Home Depot.  Wish I'd had the HD experience before entering seminary.  It would have helped me focus on what really matters rather than on the abstract and theoretical. Listen up any aspiring pastors out there.

    Architecture. It takes 5 years to get a bachelors, then there is an internship for a certain number of hours, a few tests to pass, etc. It's a long and difficult process, but architecture has always seemed interesting to me. Especially the man in Texas who created his own business that assesses personalities and designs your home specifically for you.

    I'd definitely go back for a degree in criminology, especially classes that would get me into investigating crime scenes to find the puzzle pieces and then fitting them together to discover what, how, and when something happened.
