In response to another comment..
Sounds like you have a great sense of humor. A very long winded ( but interesting ) way of saying: you become your environment; If you want to change you, then change your interaction with your surroundings. People, places, and things all change when you apply (keyword) the force to change it.
I tried to clarify further what I meant in my previous post on Linkedin:
Meaningful job: nice to have but most are too busy/consumed with "going through the motion",
and would not take time to 'ask' nor 'search' what 'true meanings' are for them.
Hence by challenging themselves, and testing/learning more, they should then be able to get to know
1) what they really want/would like to achieve (meaningful job might just be one of
2) set goals and concrete steps to achieve them. whether it is new skills to a meaningful job or indeed impactful life,
this would be the Orange pill of life (matrix analogy).
Of course next step would be to take the RED pill, & (challenge oneself to) learn more about the whole world and its global challenges of Food, Water, natural Resources, & systemic problems of the finance world...
and get mightily depressed..
If there is enough GRIT applied.. then maybe work towards a viable solution.. on that happy note, back to my work.
Question: Would you dare to take the Orange or RED pill? (Congratulations btw, as its a given that you are not taking the blue pill as you would not have taken the time to read Prof Adam's post and my long-winded reply!)
Good luck to us all!
