“Most men die at age 25 but are not buried until they are 70.” – Benjamin Franklin

Scott Dinsmore, over at Live Your Legend, wrote a thought-provoking post about how complacency not only kills our dreams, but may also be killing the American Dream. Can we be fulfilled as individuals or a society if 80% of people are unhappy in their jobs? Will Innovation come from doing what’s ‘practical’ and ‘realistic’?

He asks the questions: Is being ‘fine’ really what you want to work towards? All this studying, learning, doing – a lifetime of work just to be average?

He offers some answers for those who want to break out of their rut and pursue their dreams. And for those of us who are already self-employed, he challenges us to help encourage and mentor others.
