Rob Sarmiento, Ph.D.

I am a psychologist and career coach in practice in Houston since 1976. I often ask people what they would do if they won the lottery. Most say they would not work, which implies they see work as just a way of making a living. You hit the nail on the head when you said you don't have to win the lottery to do what you want. Indeed, the secret of career planning, in my experience, is to be honest with yourself about what you want to do with your life and then try to get people to pay you to do it. That is a lot more possible than most people realize. Thanks for a great article.


Since you're so happy without winning... if you do win, well, um... give me a call! I could take some of it off your hands for you!

If I won:

1) Bigger house in the South of France ~ one big enough we could fit in the....

2) Full time nanny/housekeeper

3) Hubby could quit work and focus on and pursue all the things he's interested (he really is the most interesting man I have ever met!!) I'd also invest enough that I'd be sure we wouldn't have to work again.

4) Considering we had full time help... I'd talk hubby into having a reversal of that little 'op' that he underwent for us... and I'd have another 2 kids!!

(we're talking $18 aren't we?)

5) Give all the family a handsome check.

6) Give our friends in Ukraine enough to build an orphanage.

7) I'd go see my grandma and friends in the States.

8) I'd get a personal trainer and cook (*grin*).

9) I would have manicures and pedicures whenever I wanted ~ and massages, and my hair done...

(Have I spent it all yet?)

10) I'd see the world...

Oh I could *so* be a wealthy person!! *sigh*

I really could go on and on, but as yet, we've no cook or nanny ~ duty calls!
