What a man I would be, if I had went to another school, moved to another city or taken another job? We can’t turn back time to find out. So we continue to follow our secret dreams. Because grass is always greener on the other side.
A simple work that perfectly represents the distance between the real work, asitis, and the ideal job. A carousel of dissatisfactions and desires of change, a spiral in which someone else is already doing the work we would do. A tour on this merry-go-round is sufficient to remove the idea of work as a vocation and to swallow the corporate myth of the right person at the right place.
