Engineer vs. Doctor


   Just had a fascinating conversation with a lawyer during an Open House for a dental establishment. After some initial business repartee the lawyer started talking about an invention he's been trying to market. I could tell from his excitement that this invention was his passion and not his official occupation. Sounds familiar? Do you have a JOB or do you have a PASSION?
   Coincidentally, the dentist who was hosting the event also had an alter ego. He's a guitarist for a blues band.
   Last night I watched a TEDx Talk about making Hard Choices. The speaker disected our decision process --- many times we justify our decisions to appease our internal soul. What frustrated me (as in many philosophical TED talks) is the unbalanced emphasis on "supposed" empirical data and a lack of the faith perspective. It's understandable because they've probably never been "there." And so they dismiss anything that has to do with faith. How could you speak of faith if you've never experienced it?
    So how do you balance the two philosophies? I recall the advice I gave my son when he was deciding his career path. I told him not to focus on himself. I told him to ask not what he wants but what God wants of him. Given your talents, given your bent, where do you think you would be most effective to society? Answer that well and no matter what hardships may come, the pain will be more bearable because you know that's exactly where God wants you to be.

"But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord."
--- Joshua 24:15

Engineer vs. Doctor
Contributed by Don of Kelowna, B.C.

An Engineer could not find a job, so he opens a clinic, and puts a sign outside that says "Get treatment for $50; if not cured get back $100."

A doctor thinks this is a good opportunity to show up the engineer and earn a quick $100. And so he visits the clinic.

Doctor: I have lost my sense of taste.

Engineer: Nurse, bring the medicine from Box # 22 and place 3 drops In the patient's mouth.

Patient (Doctor) spits out the medicine and says "This is not medicine!!! It's gasoline!!!"

Engineer: Congrats! You have your taste back! That will be $50.

* * * * *

Doctor gets annoyed, and returns after several days to recover his money.

Doctor: I have lost my memory and can't remember a thing.

Engineer: Nurse, bring the medicine from Box # 22 and place 3 drops in the patient's mouth.

Doctor: "Wait ... that medicine is for the sense of taste" protests the Doctor.

Engineer: Congrats! Your memory is back! That will be $50.

* * * * *

Doctor leaves, but after several days angrily returns for one last try.

Doctor: My eyesight has become weak.

Engineer: Well I don't have any medicine for that. Take this $100

Doctor: But this is only a $50 note!

Engineer: Congratulations! Your eyesight has gotten better! That will be $50!

OK, so we humans are the worst offenders of nature. But there are a few exceptions of our breed that help creatures who are unable to help themselves. Would you do something like this?
