Being a Consultant is Lazy

I’m probably wrong.

Being a consultant is probably tiring, and tough, and has a long stretch of pain before it gets good. Maybe it’s really hard.

But I have a feeling this is only because those doing it are doing it because they hate it.

I find school extremely tiring because I hate it. I don’t want to do it. I don’t want the outcome it brings me (a degree/secure job path), so accordingly, I don’t want to do the work to bring me to this outcome.

All I really want to say is that all my friends are going to be consultant’s because they are too scared to be honest with themselves, figure out what they actually want to do, and commit to it now.

Of course, you can’t blame them. It’s what their parents did. Probably. They’re just doing what they know best.

But no, I think you can blame them. And we must blame them. I think it’s unacceptable to settle doing shit you don’t want to do. It’s be a pussy.

I just HATE how this is such a core part of our society.

“Put in the work.” See this phrase I like. If I’m going to start the world’s largest street hockey festival like Play On!, I am going to need to put in work.

While this work is hard, it is towards something cool. Something that helps people.

Basically, it seems to me that only doing stuff you want is an awesome way to live, and because we all are smart and able to produce lots of value, doing what we want should help the world.
