These Kids Will Give You the Best Life Lessons You’ll Hear This Year (These Kids Are All Dying)

Absurdly Driven looks at the world of business with a skeptical eye and a firmly rooted tongue in cheek. 

Winning is everything.

Wait, winning isn’t everything. It’s the only thing, right?

These are the sorts of precepts we end up living by. 

And slowly, they ruin us.

Our values aren’t merely screwy. 

They end up being non-existent, as they become based on some utterly manufactured scale of success.

Please welcome, then, pediatrician Alastair McAlpine. 

In a few tweets, he tried to show what the kids he works with — kids who are dying — value in life.

Take a moment to listen to them. It might just be worth it.

If you’re not an utter mess by the end of it, perhaps your life really has become skewed in a twisted direction.

Perhaps you do all of these things. 

Perhaps you fancy yourself a shining exception.

Perhaps read these tweets again. 

Just in case you’re kidding yourself, you understand.
