You will spend, give or take, 90,000 hours working in a lifetime. This is about 1/3 of your life.
Look at your professional life this way and you suddenly start to see it from an entirely new perspective.
Do you want to spend this time—your time—doing work that drains you, with people you don’t get along with, for an organization that doesn’t seem to care about you?
Or would you prefer if you did work you loved, with people who inspire you, for an institution, company, or non-profit whose mission you genuinely want to help make happen?
This is The 90,000-Hour Challenge. Take it or leave it, but remember that you don’t get to play twice.
