« As The Year Ends | Main | The Other Side of Practicality »

January 05, 2017


Mark Dennen

Everyone can and should live their dream. That said, they should also realize there are consequences to their decisions. If they choose to be an elementary school teacher or a social worker, both noble professions, they should realize they are likely not to make the amount of income they would make as an engineer or a biochemist. The problem is many want the dream and the income and often this is not possible.

For many, me included, a job is not a life, but a means to a life. I did my job to provide for my family and when I was able, I retired to pursue other things. I suspect many are in a similar situation. You cannot have it all, so you must make choices and live with them.


Wow, look at that timeline of never giving up... Decades and decades of time... Think about how many people would have quit or as he said " died of thirst just when the palm trees are on the horizon".

He fell in love with the process. The longer the battle, the sweeter the victory.

Good for him and great story to pass along... Keep going Friends
