Jim Rohn, an american entrepreneur, once said “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.”
I always struggled with the idea of getting a job. Some people call their job a J-O-B which stands for Just, Over, Broke.
From age 17 to 24 I struggled every year with employment. When I was in university, every summer, I had to go out and “get a job” to pay for next year’s tuition. Every year I would procrastinate, the idea of a job bored me, and I felt in my heart that I didn’t want to work for someone else. Every summer was different, I worked at Tim Hortons, local restaurants, odd painting jobs, and even had a short taste of direct sales. Nothing felt good and every year as the summer would approach I felt myself feeling depressed.
In 2008 when I graduated from university with an Arts degree, the game was over. My parents and society both agreed that it was time to leave the fantasy world of school and join the “real world” and get a “real job”.
