On days when I think about quitting, there are a lot of things I know that money could buy.
At Medium, artist and designer Elle Luna discusses the different choices we make at different points in our careers—the “shoulds” being what we ought to do and what people expect us to do, and the musts being “who we are, what we believe, and what we do when we are alone with our truest, most authentic self.”
The Macbook I have does everything I need. I don’t need a faster a computer. I could take the $100 and be perfectly happy (note: I have the 13-inch, so I wouldn’t be getting the 15-inch with the new retina display, which starts at $2,200 and there’s no way I’m paying that for a laptop). Or I could trade my laptop in for one that’s slightly faster, and be happy that I have an updated model.
Would you take the upgrade, or the check?
