      Very long article, but amazingly written and incredibly interesting! I would highly recommend it to anyone interested!

        Thanks, Sam! This is an excellent, worthwhile read. It's a bit repetitive at times and could probably be trimmed down to ~60-minutes, but, regardless, the topic is worth the long meditation anyway.

        PS - Hope you're doing well, enjoying the process of deciding what you want to do with your career and life. Remember that the process never ends. As the author clearly establishes, we'll probably spend much of our lives reconsidering our career choice(s) - and that's a good thing!

          A week later, I still can't stop thinking about this article. Specifically, the Lifestyle Yearnings tentacle, whispering in my ear: "Find time to be bored. There's nowhere to go except where you are. Be like Thoreau. Loaf."

          It's a scary feeling to keep looking deeper and deeper and realize that I want even more and more leisure time... ?
