Most people sign an unwritten contract every day. We trade a paycheck for predictability. Does your arrangement go something like this? Boss, you give me a predictable every-two-week paycheck, health insurance, projects to work on, lunch breaks, and a Christmas party, and I’ll give you my will, my dignity, my freedom of choice, my security, my sleep, and […]
