O vorbă din folclorul motivațional de Facebook spune așa: dacă te simți blazat și ai impresia că ești captiv într-o rutină tiranică, fă o listă cu lucrurile care îți plac și apoi încearcă să îți schimbi prioritățile în funcție de ele. Dar lucrurile pe care vrem să le facem au nevoie de timp sau de bani, iar pentru bani trebuie să muncim și tot așa, cercul vicios continuă, iar motivaționalele strâng like-uri și visat cu ochii deschiși.
Așa că am dedicat lista noastră cu video-uri de weekend acestei dileme: e important să faci ceea ce îți place și restul să vină după? Oamenii mari mai pot să își urmeze visele? Cum ajungi la obiectivele acelea ambițioase în realitate?

Why does it take so long to grow up today? | Jeffrey Jensen Arnett | TEDxPSU
It takes so long to “grow up” today—finish education, find a stable job, get married—that it makes sense to think of it as a new life stage, emerging adulthood, in between adolescence and young adulthood. But why? Four revolutions of the 1960s and ‘70s explain it: the Technology Revolution that changed the economy and led to more education for longer than ever before; the Sexual Revolution that made it possible to have a sex life without marriage; the Women’s Movement that gave women an incentive to postpone marriage to pursue a career; and the Youth Movement, which gave adulthood a bad name. Older adults grumble that it takes “too long” to grow up today, but most people will be better partners and parents if they wait longer, so why not use most of the twenties for adventures you’ll never be able to have again?
