Career hunger.

Is it the hunger for more money?

The hunger to prove our worth?

Is it a hunger akin to wanting to contribute to society in a meaningful, authentic way?

Because we spend such a disproportionately large portion of our lives working, not satisfying this hunger is dangerous.

Many of us quit, and stay, for decades.

Is this a self-imposed prison?

Does it devour our soul?

Is it a catalyst to become the artist we were born to be?
