It's really good to hear from many different perspective here. Digging out this old thread as I've something to share.
Here's a good read: Maslow's Theory of Self-Actualization
It's a long read but worth your time. It's a "theory" nonetheless but it's pretty insightful. I'm not an advocate of the theory nor do I profess to be an expert in this.
Most of us don't have our deficit needs met that's why we become despondent, not motivated to fulfill our potential. Applying this to a country like Singapore, one of our biggest concern in such an unforgiving economy is job security so that one would be able to pay off their truckloads of monthly instalments and still have enough to sustain their basic needs. Whether if their job is their interest or not, as long as it give them security in such needs, they won't be moved. It's all about having "job security" so that you can have "social security".
Do you think that the most important things in life are not things? Really?
I'm sure all of us do.

I am quitting my job this coming week, and taking 1 year off without income to pursue my dream in mountaineering.
Will be climbing for 7 months over the next 1 year. This is extra stressing for my family, gf, as well as on my own pocket, but I feel the sacrifice is worth it.
Chances like this don't come by everyday....
