Drink the Kool Aid?

So it’s become apparent to me that I drank the Kool Aid, I got sucked into the Harvard machine. I thought that I should pursue a career where I was smart enough…nay entitled to. Instead, I’m now realizing both intellect and passion are necessary.

In order to be good at your job you (if you’re like me), you need to enjoy what you do. It’s not sufficient to be smart/qualified enough as that only takes you so far. I’m now at the ‘so far’ point and now have to figure out where my passion, intellect and wallet can go.

It’ll be an interesting road, and I’ll try not to drink any more Kool Aid and do what I want – not what is expected of people like me.
