After speaking with a friend last night, I got to thinking about some stuff.

Yes, you have to suffer through another one of these. You’ve had enough of anyways.

What is it that we’re supposed to do here?
Don’t say the mate and breed crap cause that’s just pathetic.
Find that one special someone? Perhaps.

Well, let's be more specific, in our professional lives. What are we aiming to do?
For many, it's just to survive. Make enough money to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. I'm not talking about those people though. They are insignificant.

Those who have a choice. Those who are the elite, the charmed ones as I call them.

Here's two very general scenenios.
Sell out, make lots of money and be happy with material things and freedom to do whatever. That emptyness will slowly creep in as you realize you don't do anything that contributes to society. Not that you care, nor feel anything, but you may realize it one day. or
Do something significant in your life, generally however, that doesn't pay very well.
In this case you feel a sense of contributing to society, but you're probably broke. Not that you need money or want material things, but broke never the less.

I realize these are very general stereotypes, but those who are self-aware understands this delimma. Where and how to balance it out?

I'm meeting with my close advisors of Jim, Jack, the Captain to talk about this later. I'll let you know what we come up with.
