To be a human is to grow.
And to grow, we all need a job to do.
Like an Australian Kelpie, we all need a job to do. The Kelpie is never happier than when put to work on a task.
For the rest of us, we need to master a skill, grow a skill, build a family, lead a community or create a business.
The alternative is for things to stay the same and risk stagnation or death by decay.
Without purpose, mastery, or simply a job to do, the holy trinity of depression, illness and anxiety can creep in and slowly choke us.
Give me a mountain, any day.
