“What would you like to do if money were no object?”

If you have not yet listened to this talk, I implore you to give 3 minutes of your life to this (if only to hear Alan Watts’ voice). If you have already heard this, you know it is worth listening to again. So many of us put too much emphasis on choosing a career based on income and the pursuit of material things. Don’t get me wrong, at the end of the day you do need support yourself. And it is nice to be able to treat yourself once in a while. But if you are not happy with what you are doing on a daily basis, for the better part of your adult life, are all those things going to make up for it?

In my favourite line of this talk Alan says “It is better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way.” That oughtta get you reevaluating your life plans…
