Yes, You Are Useful
There are 7.594 billion people in the world — 2.3 billion more than when I was born.
With so many humans, it’s tempting to play with such thoughts as:
- What use do I still have?
- Can I possibly be original?
- How will I ever stand out?
Throughout my 20’s that’s all I could think about — how to be more, how to be better, how to be useful.
And then there was a turning point, right around when I turned 30, where I set aside ambition and felt comfortable with my role in life.
