And please tell him the same thing — reassure him that these people are out of their minds and that he will figure out a career path when he actually needs to, which isn’t for quite some time. So while he’s in college, he should get all the work experience that he can.

What life would look if we said no to work-life balance (and a nod to Amazon, of course)

Penelope Trunk

Which means you are competing against your peers, but you are also ranked on how well you can get along with them. They train for the Olympics and then they go to college after they compete. Or they work long hours for a decade and then they quit to have kids. And of course, anyone who doesn’t like the deal that Amazon offers should just quit. More people should quit more of the time. You quit a job when you’re exhausted, which feels risky.

Age is power – Being Badass at 50
