Work is a routine and should be the last thing occupying your dreams. However, because it is where you spend much of your life, it has a way of creeping into your subconscious. To dream of doing work may actually lead to a creative breakthrough or a new way of doing things--that is, if you can recall your nocturnal brainstorm. If unusual characters appear in the workplace, such as members of your family, you may want to try to bring their influence into your professional life.
