Looking backwards in the last 2,5 years I can now connect the dots, like Steve Jobs had explain in his renowned Stanford speech (and no, I’m not an i* fan).
Here the video with the excerpt, it’s worth spending the 26 seconds:
The first day of Spring 2012, that was Tuesday 20th of March because 2012 is a leap year, I resigned from work.
It’s not just resigning from a company.
I’m resigning from the rat race, the corporate lifestyle, the investors logic, the work for someone else interests, the trap of the high salary, the safety of being employee, the comfort of doing what you know you’re good at, the tax advantages for expats in Holland.
This is the last post of the 3×3 challenge that Cloudio and I put together to experiment with writing, always selecting random subjects and inventing strange rules.
It has been so much fun that Cloudio decided to set as a rule to condensate the last 3 articles in a single one, but of 333×3=999 words instead of the standard (for me, not for him apparently) 333 words format.
“Death is very likely the single best invention of Life” said Steve Jobs during the Stanford speech, one of the most beautiful talks about life I heard, and one I particularly like to listen every now and then.
Isn’t this a question everyone should ask himself?
’cause when you have a roof, shelter and safety,
you can relax and enjoy your pelf
but then you’ll get bored, and you’ll want variety
and think inside you, “is it time for a quest?”
