You are more than your résumé. You are the result of a unique intersection of matter, time, and space. I mean, the odds against you being here are astronomical. You are a gift. Truly a one-time special offer. At the same time, you’re no big deal; there are billions of other people in the world. But no one like you. Never has been, never will be. Make room in your heart for this paradox — it is the root of compassion. Strive to do good works and not just to be a good worker. Try not to conflate wealth and worth. Understand that capitalism is an imperfect tool, not an infallible religion. You are more than a client, a customer, a vendor, an employee, a means to an end.
