We live in the age of the independent contractor: everybody wants to work for themselves, doing something they love. The most fantastic part about this is that we are seeing unprecedented career diversification. We have never inhabited a time in which people make millions of dollars off a social media platform or from blogging. What this means for every waking human is that we have the opportunity to create success how we see fit on an individualized level.
I don’t know about you, but I have always heard that life is short and I have to make the most of it. Logically, it all made sense: of course I have a finite number of days to live the life of my dreams. Today something changed, and I know what precipitated it. A quote. A sentence among many, strung together like words in a song. So innocuous, yet so profound.
“This is your life and it’s ending one second at a time.”
