Every once in a while, you ask yourself the question, maybe even right before reading this, “Is my job really needed? Isn’t this all just a bunch of bullcrap?” I ask myself that question occasionally. Now I am not saying that I have your answer, but an article that was shared with me might get you closer.
Please read “On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs.” It is excellently written and gave me more personal insight into the nature of certain areas of employment. Check it out and let me know if you have your answer!

I have this friend. His name is Dave. He is a like minded media professional and is always searching for the next interesting thing to dive into head-first. In 2012, he started this new project, campaign, quest; I am not really sure what to call it. Regardless, it looks like a lot of fun. He will attempt to work 100 jobs in a single year! He already started off strong by becoming an NYC street musician right after the New Year. He has quite a lot of fortitude to take on a challenge like this and I wish him the best. Who knows, you may even see me in one of his jobs. Please check out the website, his videos on YouTube, subscribe on Facebook, follow on Twitter, or just send him some encouraging words via email. He will appreciate every last letter of good will. Enjoy!
