What exactly is Horizontal Ambition? First of all it’s not vertical ambition. It has nothing to do with libido. It isn’t that urge to take a nap that overcomes a person twenty minutes after lunch, although some people do confuse it with sloth.

So if you’re not climbing the ladder, then what the hell are you doing? And how can you call yourself ambitious?. We all know the type, heck, I am the type, the guy who went to the good school and showed so much promise and is running the ski lift in the winter and waiting tables in the summer. Jobs for us are just a way to support our hobbies. And do we have hobbies!
