Thoughts

One of the greatest compliments that I think I can ever receive in life is if someone who really knows me tells me the following:

Jay, I’ve known you for a long time now, and you’re always the same dude.

The above comment might not seem like much, and albeit it can read rather vague if there’s no context behind it, but for a simple dude like myself, that’s really all I want out of life.

Let me elaborate a bit…

When I reached my mid 20s, you could say I reached an important crossroads of sorts. I’m not sure if I was going through the moment of arriving at my own version of “quarter life crisis” but many things didn’t feel right, and I felt like I was trapped in life.

Although to a large degree I’m someone who always kind of has enjoyed working hard, I knew within a few years of working in Corporate America that it wasn’t the life for me long-term. When you’re working for someone else and constantly under the microscope, it’s oftentimes not smooth-sailing, and if you’re one of those people who prefers autonomy, there’s naturally going to be a lot of dissonance there with that type of employer/employee arrangement.
