Power Of Passion vs. Curse Of Competency

There are few things more frustrating than dealing with a competent bureaucrat.

Frustrating for you, and for them.

The boredom of life as a mid level wage slave can be a painful existence. Sacrificing your free time and energy as a cog in someone else's machine is a waste of life. No wonder they so often try to enjoy abusing the little power they posses.

Contrast that with a life of creativity and passion pursuing your dreams. There have been times when I was immersed in a project twenty hours a day - and loving it. At other times I have been able to enjoy freedoms, friends, and family with surplus energy because the work I was committed to was energizing, not draining. That joy provided a spark that allowed me to spend more time in relationships because my profits and production were high.

With a great deal of insight into the curse of competency, here is a link to an essay by a creator of one of BFU's masters courses, Doug Casey.

If you can, find one of his out of print best selling books and read it. Another way to profit from this remarkable man is to subscribe to one of his Doug's letters.

You will learn a lot about a lot of different things.

Doug Casey is a Renaissance man.

He is far beyond competent.
