“Working a job gives someone else control over the majority of your life: These aren’t feudal times. If you live in the free world, there is no reason you have to work for someone else. The freedom to pursue happiness and live the life you desire is the greatest gift of modern society, yet most of us piss that opportunity away.
When you work a job, someone else is ultimately in control of what you work on, what you’re responsible for, when you work, when you take time off and how much you earn. If you absolutely love your job, perhaps giving up that amount of controls is worth it. For most people, it seems insane to accept those conditions”
