Why do people climb the ladder? “Because it’s there.” And when they don’t have any other goals, the ladder fills a vacuum.
If you never make the leap from externally-motivated to intrinsically-motivated, this will eventually becomes a serious risk factor for your career. Without an inner compass (and a renewable source of joy), you will struggle to locate and connect with the work that gives your life meaning. You will risk burnout, apathy and a serious lack of fucks given..
The times I have come closest to burnout or flaming out have not been when I was working the hardest, but when I cared the least. Or when I felt the least needed.📈📉💔
From THE HIERARCHY IS BULLSHIT, WE CAN DO BETTER.. Happy Friday everyone.
