people ask me: “i’m trying to make myself more marketable. what kinds of skills should i be learning that are in demand right now?”

that’s a punch in the gut to me.

how is it that we’ve accepted a culture where we believe work is simply a means to a paycheck? what ever happened to purpose? what ever happened to passion?

when i get those inquiries, i always answer with the same response: “you’re not asking the right questions. you should be asking ‘what are the things i want to do in my life? and what are the things i need to do to get there?’”
