There Is A Way Out


Paperwork. Excel spreadsheets. Conference calls. Grouchy clients. Powerpoint presentations. Midnight flights. Office politics. Sugar coated lies.


All this...for the security of a paycheck? 


You are 1 out of 250,000,000 sperm cells who made it into the world and you actually think that you are here to spend the next 40 years of your life in that cubicle?


So that you can qualify for more credit, to buy shit that you don't need, to continue servicing your debts?


"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. 
The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day, to have a new and different sun" - Chris McCandless

But there is a way out. (The Bucket System)

  1. What frustrates me is when you're trying anything and everything to change your situation, but the progress is very little and/or very slow. All you can do is wait, but not wait passively though.

    I really enjoy trying new things and experiencing different things. Life can get real boring real fast if you don't.

    1. Yes, I can totally relate. To wait and observe slow progress is the most frustrating part of it all, but also the most crucial part. Most people tend to give in to the frustration and splurge.

      Like what you said, the key here is to try new things and experiences. Blogging, is one of them.
