chasing vague goals halfheartedly is a sign of mental weakness and immaturity
you're still stuck in your fantasies while everyone's working with concrete stuff. you just want that concrete stuff to build up into your fantasies
there will always be a clear divide between the two. most people give up on fantasies after being thrown on their ass by life. or smart ones can sniff out the nature of life itself without having to suffer too much. but you will have to idiots who believe in 'follow your dreams.'
It would not be so bad if they obtained more pleasure from the work itself. But a lot of these idiots just stay hopeful yet do not put much regard into the work.
It makes sense to me. If you lust after a dream enough, it hurts to do the work, because if you ever have to face the fact that you do not enjoy the work itself, then your dream is as good as dead. And that is too much for the spineless to handle.
