Giving the finger to a scripted life!

It's crazy to take jobs just because they look good on your resume. That's like saving sex for your old age. ~ Warren Buffet.
You have plans for your life, career etc. You've built an entire script but what is this based on?

Scott at Ted talks about how almost 80% of the people around the world don't like the job they do. In his career, he found one day that most of the job he did was automated by his competitors.

Building the resume was clearly not way forward. It was during that time he he heard the quote by warren buffet, "It's crazy to take jobs just because they look good on your resume. That's like saving sex for your old age". This was when he left his job.

While there are know universities, which talk about finding your passion, Scott talks about a lens that can help in finding the job we love.
