This isn’t a resume, this is life

Each step meticulously planned.

Each decision made through the lens of what the reader of our one-page “life” primer would believe to be the most attractive.

Did you work there for two years? Is the firm prestigious? What were your KPIs?

Why did you change jobs/move/do something different?

The world wants us to fit into a perfectly edited resume. They want to label and categorize. Their slogans may even preach for us to grow our own way, but the reality is a much different story.

The cleaner, more uniform the inputs, the more efficient and perfect are the outputs.

We are so busy trying to be the best inputs that we rarely think about what the output, our life, will eventually become.

This day, this moment, this life…it is not meant to live perfect in a bullet point.
