Get a Life not a Career: Become a Hero not a CEO

William Wallace Screwing the System

Our outlooks are all skewed. We live in a system where the amount of money we earn and the status we attain is prized more highly than our levels of happiness and the good we do.

F**K The Lottery

Ponder this hypothetical question. You walk into a room with two tables in front of you. On top of the one to your left is a winning lottery ticket for £10/$16 million. On top of the one to your right is a red pill marked Ultimate Prize. Beside it, is an explanatory note informing you that upon taking the red pill you will have complete mastery over your inner world. You are only allowed to choose one option.

Why the System is Toothless (And what this means for YOU)

You against the world! Scary stuff, huh? Have you ever had a dream of doing something out of the ordinary? Have you ever wanted to change something for the better?

What would be the typical response from the people around you if you voiced these plans? What would they say if you set out on a mission to screw the system?  

Are you 'Selling Sugar Water' or Changing the World?

Why it's Bad to have a 'Good Job'.

'"So how's John doing?'"

"Oh, he's doing well. He's got a 'good job' working in the city.'"

Although fictional, this is an exact replica of many conversations I've had with people over the years. It usually takes place when meeting friends, old friends I haven't seen for a while and parents of friends etc . . . The term 'good job' and the message it conveys might be specific to the UK, but I'm sure every country has its equivalent.
