Craig E. Steinfeld @CESteinfeld: Are crazy dreams worth pursuing when a current job is stable and has ample opportunity for growth?
For every question, take out the words that are loaded with fear and see what the sentence looks like then. The “fear word” here is “Are”.
Let’s move it around in our laboratory and see what happens!
“Crazy dreams ARE worth pursuing when a current job is stable”.
In other word, you want to pursue a crazy dream.
But it doesn’t have to be black and white. I like stable jobs to. I had crazy dream after crazy dream when I had a stable job at HBO, for instance. And pursued all of them. On the side. Your life is a sword that you are forging in the fire of the metallurgist. Make sure it has two sides. The side that can keep the stability so that you don’t have the worries of paying the bills. And the side where you can pursue the crazy dreams.
If you can’t do that and an evil Orc comes to fight you to the death you will lose the fight. You must have the weapons in hand for both stability and for the crazy dreams. Else, one side will always regret the other. The Orc will kill you in your sleep.
