The oldest story in the Western Canon is an adventure (The Iliad). The most successful movie franchise is history is an adventure (Star Wars).
We love our adventure stories, it seems. Every wondered why?
It’s not difficult to answer: we resonate with the ‘adventure model’ because life itself is an adventure. The stuff our lives are made of, is the same stuff the great epics are made of: Love. Loss. Danger. Risk. Work. War. Sex. Good. Evil. Magic. Morality. Gods. Monsters. Disease. Famine. Family. Nature. Culture. It’s all there in the great stories. And it’s all here, somewhere inside of you as well.
So whether you like it or not, your work, your job, your place of employment is an embodiment of all that. So embrace it. Heed the call.
Because that is what life is for, right?
