Typical Life Pyramid

What if we don't have to accept that our dream jobs or that more exciting career options have passed us and are no longer an option?

Here is how the pyramid of life normally works:

  1. As a child, you explored.
  2. As a student, you specialized.
  3. Now, as an adult, you can easily define who you are to yourself and other people.

This is the path I have followed for a long time. This is the narrowing path most people will follow. Not because that’s what they want but because that’s what is expected from them.

For most this works out just fine, but what about those that are still searching for a true calling?
