3. Speak with a partner

a. Do you know anyone who has followed their desire in the way Alan Watts suggests?

b. Regarding this desire, Watts says “you could eventually become a master of it. And then you’ll be able to get a good fee for whatever it is”. Is this realistic or idealistic?

c. How does family life fit into Watts’ advice? Doesn’t following your desire mean forgetting responsibilities like taking care of sick family members, changing nappies, providing food, and so on?

d. If everyone forgot about getting money and followed their passion, would the world be a better place to live?
