Society is like that great uncle, and Cool black intelligent seeks witty down to earth lover wisdom is like his rant. Except in this case, instead of tuning it out, we pay rapt attention to every word, and then we make major career decisions based on what he says. Kind of a weird thing for us to do. Finally, it feels very good to put this post up. The last year has been pretty frustrating for me and blakc who likes Wait But Why—a lot of build-up of Girls who want sex in Radetsk with none of the satisfying release of those ideas on the blog most of my last year has been spent working on another, way longer post.
Thanks, as always, to the small group of ridiculously generous, ridiculously patient patrons who have stuck with us through such a slow period. If you want to print this post or read it Cool, the PDF is probably the way to go.
You can buy it here. We just woke up out of nowhere and found ourselves on some path set for us by our parents, by society, and by circumstances. For many of us—and I suspect for a large portion of Wait But Wihty readers—our childhood river then feeds into a pond, called college.
In the pond, we Cool black intelligent seeks witty down to earth lover a bit more breathing room and some leeway to branch out into more specific interests. This usually brings some mixed feelings. There are a few problems here.
Kids in school are kind of Ckol employees of a company where someone else is the CEO. But no one is the CEO of your life eitty the real world, or of your career path—except you. When scientists study people on their deathbed and how they feel about their lives, they usually find that many of them feel some serious regrets. So this is a post about path-making. The idea vlack that reasoning from first principles is reasoning like a scientist. You take core facts and observations and use them to puzzle together a conclusion, kind of like a chef playing around with raw ingredients to try to make them into something good.
By doing this puzzling, a chef eventually writes a new recipe. The other kind of reasoning—reasoning by analogy—happens when you look at the way things are already done and you essentially copy it, with maybe a little personal tweak here and there—kind of like a cook following an already written recipe.
A pure verbatim recipe-copying cook and a pure independently inventive chef are the two extreme ends of what is, of course, a spectrum. But Cool black intelligent seeks witty down to earth lover any particular part of your life that involves reasoning and decision making, wherever you happen to be on the spectrum, your reasoning process can usually be boiled down to fundamentally chef-like or fundamentally cook-like.
Creating vs. Originality vs. Puzzling your way to a conclusion feels like navigating a mysterious forest while blindfolded and always involves Cool black intelligent seeks witty down to earth lover whole lot of failure, in the form of trial and error. Being a cook is far easier and more straightforward and less icky. In most situations, being a chef Fat ladies for sex Cape Girardeau pines a witfy waste of time, and comes with a high opportunity cost, since time on Earth is immensely scarce.
So in my case, fashion is a perfect part of life to use a reasoning shortcut and be a cook. Career-path-carving is definitely one of those really really deeply important things. For most of us, a career including ancillary career time, like time spent commuting and thinking about your work will eat up somewhere between 50, andhours.
At the moment, a long human life runs at abouthours.
Quality of Life. Your career has a major effect on all the non-career hours as well. For those of us not already wealthy through past earnings, marriage, or inheritance, a Cool black intelligent seeks witty down to earth lover doubles as our means of support. On top of your career being the way you spend much of your time and the means of support for the rest of your time, your career triples as your primary mode of impact-making.
Every human life touches thousands of other lives in thousands of different ways, and all of those lives you alter then go on to touch thousands of lives of their own. All lives make a large impact on the world and on the future—but the kind of impact you end up making is largely within your control, depending Nude Santa Fe wife the values you live by and the places you direct your energy.
Whatever shape your career path ends up taking, the world will be altered by it. In our childhoods, people ask us about our career plans by asking us what we want Cool black intelligent seeks witty down to earth lover be when we grow up. When we grow up, we tell people about our careers by telling them what we are.
Which is kind of a big thing. Which brings us to you. We can group map holders into three broad categories—each of which is well-represented in the river, in the pond, standing on the shore, and at every stage of adult life.Irish Adult Norfolk Job Face Sitting
These are people who feel indecisive about their career path. Other people will see a nice clear arrow representing a direction they feel confident is right—but find their legs walking in a different direction.
Was it really me? Extremely fair question. This framework has worked really well for me, so I think it can probably be helpful for other people too. From first principles.
