The real motivation for this issue was the beginning of a new job. Life takes a frustrating cycle of “paying your dues,” moving from rookie to pro to veteran, and then moving to a new venue and starting all over again. Like the high school senior becoming a college freshman, or the masters student becoming an intern.
Life is just a series of ladders stacked one on top of another; you reach the top of one, and it just takes you to the bottom of another. And when you finally reach the end, you’ll realize that you wasted all your time trying to get there, and enjoying nothing.
