3) THE APPROACH-AVOIDANCE THING
Decide that you refuse to work at some arbitrary job. Resolve to become a lawyer. Take a trial LSAT and do really poorly on the logic section. Resolve to make it as an actor. Go to one audition and nearly end up slitting your wrists afterwards. Resolve to be a trader, like on Wall Street. Look into training program and decide only an asshole would climb that ladder. Looks like the more information you get on any career, the less you want it, huh? Pick a career you know nothing about, and throw yourself into it without thinking. Wake up 50 years later, a broken man. Learn to golf.
Benefits: You may not know what you want, but at least you know what you don't want.
Drawbacks: Perpetual indecision makes life about as enjoyable as a plate of cold french fries.
4) WILL TO POWER
Where there's a will, there's a way. Got any relatives who are, um, ailing? Isn't it about time you went to visit them? Remember, it's good to encourage older people to really let their feelings out. Therapists suggest you start with some questions to really get those old folks talkin', like "How are your kids doing? When was the last time they visited? That long, huh? How does that make you feel?" Hey, while you're there, why not help them look over their investments and review any pressing legal matters?
Benefits: Easy. Potentially quite lucrative.
Drawbacks: Must pretend to enjoy the company of confused dying
person. Must be totally evil.
