Make your own dessert


“I want to be a chef.”
“What’s the best part about being a chef?”
“You can make your own dessert.”

Always do more than think about it


“I graduated college early because I was eager to get into the real world, but the job search is tougher than I imagined. I think people are afraid to hire me because I’m young. I’ve probably applied to over two hundred jobs. I’ve found that for every ten applications, I get one call back. And for every five call backs, I get one in-person interview. I’ve had seven of those so far.”
“Do you wish you hadn’t graduated early?”
“I try not to think about it. I could apply to ten more jobs in the time I spent thinking about that.”


Career choices


“One day you wake up and you’re 45 years old. When I was young, I thought I’d be a CEO by now. I thought I’d put in 100 hours a week for as long as it took, and nothing would stop me. But then I had a family. And things changed. Expenses grew and I had less time to devote to my career. Recently I’ve been between jobs. I thought I’d have a nice retirement and education fund by now. I thought I’d have peace of mind. But now it’s starting to look like I’m going to have to work until I die at my desk.”


Taking a break


“I’m taking a break from setting goals.”

“I want to be a fairy when I grow up.”
“What’s the best part about being a fairy?”
“Flying around with your friends.”



Just do it


“How do you know each other?”

“We don’t.”

Little less maybe


“I’m trying to get back into the workforce.”
