The author reflects on the choice of working people to change their daily activities. Working people go through the motions without thinking if they enjoy what they are doing. There are still too many people who dread their daily activities, and still too few who ensure that their job is more than just a means of paying the bills. There are also too few people who see themselves as individuals who are more than just the title they hold on the job. Many people seem to have an aversion to revolutionary steps in their lives. They want to stay as close to their comfort zone as possible. But there are some people who have changed their careers more than once. The ultimate message is to consider one's options. A career change is not the end of the world.
