We begin with youthful dreams. They dissipate with experience. We take a job to make ends meet, and then another to improve our income, and then another, and before we know it, we have had a “career.” It is a meandering path. Sometimes, we find that what we are doing is something other than what we really want to do

– Mark Ford

The “what to do” in my life was not the result of thoughtful choice, but of expedient decisions based on circumstances. It took me to a good place eventually, but the path, in retrospect, seems half accidental.

I believe that is true for most of us. We begin with youthful dreams. They dissipate with experience. We take a job to make ends meet, and then another to improve our income, and then another, and before we know it, we have had a “career.”

It is a meandering path. Sometimes, we find that what we are doing is something other than what we really want to do.”
