“We’re not the young people here at work. When did that happen? Now we worry about things like…life insurance!”
As we were discussing careers, a colleague and I lamented this thought. I remember back when I started and was working with people all older than me. They were all people with spouses and kids and mortgages and real responsibilities. I was the young kid talking about going out, showing them how to do the Macarena (it *was* 1996) and not worrying about much else.
Now I look around and I’m in the group with the spouse and kids and mortgage and all the other responsibilities that go along with it. How quickly does it all happen? In the blink of an eye.
