Good, short, inspiring article.
My thoughts on this: Most people , if not all, look for some sort of steadiness in their lifes. Expecially in our modern times where religion and family structures don't matter that much anymore. More and more people realize though, that steadiness in life is pretty much an illusion. Career planning is difficult in our highly differentiated and globalized world.
I think one can distinguish at least three groups of people that have "crooked" CV's:
1. People who are forced to work something else by external factors such as being fired or because there are simply not enough vacancies in their profession.
2. People who are forced to work something else than originally intended because an "internal dissonance" and the strong desire to resolve this grew in their minds at some point in their life. I see many of such people are reading Blogs like Steve's and Self-Help/Personal Development books. I consider myself as belonging to this group.
3. People who have no fear to live without steadiness or rather who look like people without a steady life. My personal opinion is that these people have their "fixed point" inside and don't seek that in life circumstances. People like DaVinci belong to this group. Members of group 2. are trying to become like this through the way of Personal Development.
These are my thoughts to this article.
