Have you ever felt lost? I don’t so much mean literally as I do metaphysically.
I’m talking about the thought that pops into our heads which simply questions why were doing what were doing.
That is what this blog is about.
My entire life I have felt like I’ve been working towards a goal. First but not always foremost was school. K-12 with As and Bs. Simple enough until reaching high school where girls and games far outweighed grades. But I made it through and was released from the shackles of public school education. The new goal became college and the attainment of a degree. Though my priorities were still very similar to high school I managed to get a degree in finance with two separate internships to boot. Then the goal switched again and getting a job was paramount above all else. I managed to get a job as an analyst for one of the Big 3 Automotive Companies.
At this point was when I was struck with that lost feeling. What was the goal now? I can tell you that deep down I knew eleven hours of excel analysis a day wasn’t what I wanted to be remembered for. So what then?
Leave said job with an exit strategy involving one e-mail and never looking back. Check.
Create a forum where myself and others can discuss the idea of being lost in the world and share wisdom we have attained through the turbulence of life. Check.
What happens from this moment on I cannot tell or be told. I’ve fully embraced the idea that I am the “Captain of my Fate” or “Master of my Destiny” (Both sound cool to me).
It is at this that I shall end the summary. I’m eager to hear you the reader’s story about being lost and would welcome you to submit a post or comment.
