Opportunity Looks A Lot Like Work

You guys, it might be the apocalypse but Ashton Kutcher has great advice for your kids.

(These are the same key points that I make on Punk Rock HR and The Cynical Girl. There are no new ideas. Everything is a remix.)

Anyway, here are Ashton Kutcher’s tips on living a better life.

  1. You are never better than your job.
  2. You shouldn’t quit a job before you have another job.
  3. Opportunity looks a lot like hard work.
  4. The sexiest thing in the entire world is being smart, thoughtful and generous.
  5. Life is a marketing scheme. Stop falling for it. You are being sold a bill of goods to make you feel like less of a person.
  6. You should make the world great for yourself and other people.

Not bad.

(What would you add?)

I hope you share these messages with your kids. But many of you don’t. And since you are not giving the right advice to your kids — because you are too busy having a midlife crisis and trying to find your passion — Ashton Kutcher has to go on the Teen Choices Awards and do it for you.

We have come to this, people.

Get it together, parents!
