Why do you turn up for your job every day?
I turn up because it gives me money. And whether we like it or not, money is vital in life.
I could give up all of the nice things in life, the house, the car, the holidays, the nights out but life would be a lot less interesting.
The hippie life works for some but i couldn't go all in for it. I like the idea of a simple life, no debt, spend very little and have a good and happy life but it has a few downsides for me.
I like having a nice house and a nice car.
Sure there are people who live form social welfare and never do anything with their lives but it's just not me. I enjoy working and accomplishing things.
I enjoy having a reason to get up in the morning and to show my kids how to life a fulfilling life.
This doesn't necessarily mean working a 9-5 all of my life but it does mean having a purpose. A reason to get going every day and tasks to accomplish.
I turn up to work everyday because they pay me but i work every day for my own growth.
The hours I've used up growing my hive balance and hive account breaks down to cents on the hour over six years. I know that but it gives me a purpose to turn up every day.
To earn Hive tokens by one means or another. To keep growing my accounts and hit the next milestone.
To some people it might seem crazy putting so many hours into something with so little reward but it means more than that.
I turn up every day in the hope of Hive hitting $10. In the hope of changing my life somewhere down the line. I know that it's not going to happen this year but it could happen at some stage if people keep working towards it.
But even if that never happens there are so many other benefits to being part of a large progressive community like hive.
It's nice to be part of something bigger than yourself. Stiving as a group to change the outcome.
It's the same reason that people play sports. They want to win at something. As a group of people they want to hit targets and win at life.
It's human nature.
We want to win.
We want to have accomplishments.
We want to have a good life.
We want to make others look up and say well done.
It's why we turn up every day and don't just give up on life.
Some people give up but it's nothing to be proud of and over time they will regret it as they get left behind while others succeed.
