Being Lost Is Inevitable When Pursuing An Original Path

Being Lost Is Inevitable When Pursuing An Original Path

Nothing worthwhile is predictable. There is not a set path. You cannot expect one, because if there were one, it would be taught in schools.

The people that get paid the most are not those that are trained into an occupation constructed by society. Anybody can do that. That is how you become a “cog in the machine.”

You’re reading this letter because you have a (good) desire for more in life. You want to bridge the gap between work and life. You want to live a life of zest, passion, and deep satisfaction for the domain you decide to pursue with full force.
