Have you noticed how different something feels when it’s your choice, versus when it seems forced upon you?
It’s a popular phenomenon in psychology, actually. When we think we chose an option of our own free will we like it much better than if it was given to us without our input. r
Have you ever looked at an ant under a microscope?
Alien-like antennae, creepy multi-jointed hairy legs, and huge jagged pincher-jaws fill up your vision and make you want to get away.
Then you look at the ant with your naked eye and find yourself asking, “How was I ever afraid of that? It’s tiny.” r
“Go to college, major in something marketable, then get a good job in a secure field.” Sound familiar? It’s what most of us have been told.
But now that you’ve been out in the real world for a while, something doesn’t quite seem right about that advice. r
First impressions are an interesting phenomenon. Just about every article or book chapter on this topic will tell you that first impressions are extremely important, so you have to ensure that you always make a great one. Thus, they’ll encourage you to be dressed sharp, have a positive body language and pay attention to about two dozen things when you interact with a person for the first time, in order to convey the ideal message. But is all of this really necessary? And is it really useful? r
Have you ever wondered what you could do if you did not have to go to work? Are you unsatisfied with your job or your employer?

Our happiness is just as important if not more important than our finances. r
