An ongoing exploration into people’s vocations.---Why Immersed?The goal is to inspire more people to start doing the things they actually like doing, instead of being satisfied with something that merely pays the bills. What is it you want to spend your life working on?
The Slightly Longer WhyI'm noticing that many of my peers are growing ever more disillusioned with their work life. This disillusionment isn't necessarily about being 'anti-office' or 'anti-corporate', it's that they just don't like how they're spending their days. And when you're in an environment where everybody does the same thing - that thing you don't like doing - it can feel that there are no viable career alternatives out there.But there are. Lots of them actually, as this project will show you. As such, Immersed provides both a source of inspiration - for those who don't yet know what they want to do - as well as aspiration - for those who already secretly know what they want to be doing, but lack the confidence to commit to their dreams. Life is what you make it, they say. I don’t think that’s totally true, but I do think most people can make their life more to their liking than they’re currently doing.
