Could somebody help to understand if it is possible to use the phrase in the title in situations when you change you mind on certain subject, for example: "I can't decide on my future career. One day I dream of becoming a doctor, and another day I want to be a pilot." I wonder if I need to use preposition 'on' in this case. Thanks for your advice.

    If by sth you mean something, please spell out the actual word. – Jason Bassford May 14 at 17:40

    There's nothing wrong with the preposition. But I would edit the tenses used in your sentence: "I can't decide on my future career. One day I dreamt of becoming a doctor, and another day I wanted to be a pilot." – Jason Bassford May 14 at 17:41

"I can't decide on my future career. One day I dream of becoming a doctor, on another I want to be a pilot." On is necessary, the second day is not, and and is optional.

An alternative way to express that would be the following: "I can't decide on my future career. One day I dream of becoming a doctor, the next a pilot."
