Maybe its just the beer after having just given blood, but I found Po Bronson’s article, What Should I Do With My Life moving and inspiring, if not a little depressing. To quote:
Asking “What Should I Do With My Life?” is the modern, secular version of the great timeless questions about our identity. Asking The Question aspires to end the conflict between who you are and what you do. Answering The Question is the way to protect yourself from being lathed into someone you’re not. What is freedom for if not the chance to define for yourself who you are?
The article is based on a book by the same title, which, after reading the article, I feel deserves a place on my wishlist.
