Why Hanks' words should blow your mind
In case you hadn't noticed, modern workers--particularly millennials--are suffering from some rather serious Fear Of Missing Out. Many of us have been told that the world is ours for the taking and that we should taste every possibility that crosses our path. After all, what if that next chance meeting on the subway could lead to us becoming the next Steve Jobs someday? And then there's the job market. If you don't step forward, there are dozens or even hundreds of other people who happily will. Better take what someone suggests and stay safe. We're even told by popular speakers like Guy Kawasaki to "drop everything for your boss", even if it's not fair or optimal, under the guise of getting ahead.
