We have six human needs. One of them is certainty. And for many it is the most important. With a salary we know we will get paid at the end of each month.
We will eat each day. We can go to bed at night and sleep well knowing that we have a roof over our head and knowing all is good in the world.
One of the other human needs is uncertainty. It’s why, apart from bills, we like surprises. And why, even though a salary feels so damn certain, if the price for that salary is us doing something we have no love for, there will be a time when we decide to bury the dream, or chase it. That is the fork in the road.
This is the crossroads called should and must.
