Jon Setzen on The Great Discontent

“I’ve had shitty jobs and internships: folding t-shirts at radio stations, working in a stock room at Nordstrom, delivering pizzas, and all of that. It’s important to have those shitty jobs so you understand when you actually find a good job.”

  1. What a great quote! I often tell my online dating clients that those shitty “practice” dates are important for a similar reason.

    Not only do you realize that your stringent height and weight standards weren’t as important as conversational ease, but you behave like less of a weirdo yourself when you’ve gotten your awkwardness out on dates that didn’t end up mattering as much. :)

  2. Working at a screw factory in Rüttenen, Switzerland, at a Mongolian BBQ, at a sandwich place, picking berries, apples, milking cows. Yes, it gets way better. Plus, I’m kind of proud I can still program CNC technology. Now that I’m a shrink.

  3. You could definitely see your enthusiasm in the article you write.
    The world hopes for even more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe.
    At all times follow your heart.
