    That's The Problem

    I find this group very typical. I know this. It's exactly how I feel but I've started to think it's a problem. My problem is that I feel like I am made of air and I only care about air. The problem is that goals encourage action and I have such litle physical motivation that I...

    Goals Without A Dream.

    As I sit here and write this, I am a young man between jobs, switching careers and with no direction in sight. I am not money-motivated. It has taken me some time to realize this, but in doing so I am no better off than before -- I simply have a face to put to my apathy. I am...
