Alain de Botton and our “What do you do?” mania… (1)
We all think having a good job is something good.
But the most important people on the planet were important not for their work.
Imagine your self unemployed.
Imagine your self as an “unfortunate” (not a “loser”), as Botton correctly points out.
Realize your true potential.
Only when you believe your potential is gone.
