Hey! Nobody Cares What You Do! (Depressing, Until You Realize It’s POWER.)

In: WTF Am I Doing With My Career?

It’s really easy to assume that other people know what’s best for us.

The people above. The ones in charge. The bosses, the decision makers, the collective “they.”

We do what they ask, eat what they serve us, follow their guidelines, take their word, accept things at face value, and believe that someone, out there, is looking out for our best interests. Isn’t that what the government is for? Isn’t that what the big, faceless organizations are for? Aren’t there important people in charge tasked with babysitting the population at large?

It’s comforting to think that someone else is responsible for making the rules. It’s even more soothing to believe that society takes cares of its own.

But nobody cares what you’re doing.

No one’s going to tell you that your job is beneath you, or you should really have some blood work done, or that fatigue you’re feeling every day actually means something. It is 100,000% on you to trust yourself enough to figure out what’s wrong in your life—and then take steps to make it right.

Scary, right?

We’ve never had so much responsibility.

But we also never had so much fucking power.

Stop Waiting to “Be Ready.” Or “Have Your Ducks in a Row.” Or Until the Baby is Born, or the House is Built, or the Kids Are Older / More Independent / Less of a Pain in the Ass.

I hear people talk about job security all the time, as if this were a real thing. But people really seem to like the concept, you know? I mean, I can’t think of anything more comforting than 40 years of standing in an elevator every day with Lou from HR. <Wide, delirious eyes.> I’m not […]

Make Something That Matters

Things aren’t always what they seem. An email list full of 100,000 people is meaningless if only 100 of those people open the emails. Similarly, an email list of 100 people, with 100 of those people opening them, does mean something. Who is more successful? And who is doing something that actually matters?

Here’s an Opportunity – TAKE IT

I’ve got a theory. Don’t tell anyone, because if they take it to heart, they might get even better at this business thing, and then what’s going to happen is that one year from now, you’ll somehow find yourself eating red velvet cupcakes at their book signing instead of your own, except you won’t just be […]
