The numbers come from an article written by the British journalist and author, Nick Davies, with the help of the Royal College of Art, entitled, “5% of Your Life, That’s It”.
The article is a very interesting read, and highlights some important points, but in reviewing the data, I have to wonder if it’s really that 5% that matters so much.
The article talks about the “5% of your life that you want to be remembered for.” But why is that important? For the vast majority of people, five percent of their lives is not important to them. It’s how they treat their time that is important. And according to the data in the article, that’s not how people treat theirs.
The 5% of your life you look back on and think “I wish I had” is not the same thing as a 5% of your life you look back on and regret. How many of the 5% regrets you have are because you didn’t get the job that would have given you the time to do all the things you want to do.
I think its fair to say that those of us who are in tech don’t have a particularly strong relationship with our personal lives. We’re all of the same type: we’re all the same, we’re all the same, we’re all of the same type. Most of us have a strong relationship with our job, and most of us have a strong relationship with our kids, but there’s a huge group of us who don’t. And that is the people who are the most unhappy.
The first group includes us who are very happy with what we do, and we’re the one who has to work. The second group includes us who are very unhappy with what we do, and we’re the one who has to work. We’re the ones who are usually the happiest and the most productive. The third group includes us who are unhappy with our jobs, but happy with our kids, and we’re the one who has to work.
The problem is that you are happy with your job, but you are unhappy with your kids, and you have to go and work on a job that you don’t like. And if that’s the only source of money then you are going to lose a lot of your money. So what do you do? Well you go to the bank and you withdraw all your money, and you go to a job that you don’t like.
Well, for most people it isnt a question of “do you like your job,” but “do you like the job that your job pays you?”. The key here is to keep the two things separate and they will fall into a neat line.
