    Love these two antithetical views posted one after another. It's like existentialism and learned helplessness respectively.

    Well for me I don't know what I want most of the time, so there's nothing to get. I don't know if lack of wanting is always a good thing. Wanting things gives you something to work towards, and if you don't want anything then there's nothing to work for. I think it would probably actually be better for me if I did want some stuff. There's probably a good balance of desire.

    And I was a little misleading, because I do want some stuff but it's either easily obtainable (like food choices) so there's no work involved, or the things I want are unobtainable.

    Waging a year-long, revenge-served-cold, subtle spite war to get a co-worker who had wrong me framed to be fired. Not just fired, but life set to ruin. And in and through that process, catapult my career (and indeed lifestyle overall) a quantum leap forward. His ruin was my rise.
