But what about something Tyler Durden, the anarchist extraordinaire, said very early on in the movie? It’s something profound that stuck with me from the second I saw it in the movie theater to this very day. And I think it should stick with you, too.</p> <p>For those of you who haven’t seen Fight Club (please see it), or read the excellent Chuck Palahniuk book, I won’t put any major spoilers in this article. But to set the scene, at the beginning of the film Edward Norton’s character, Jack, loses everything he owns in an explosion at his home. The conversation that follows with Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt), a colorful free spirit he met on a plane prior to the incident, goes like this (excuse the language, it’s a direct lift from the screenplay):<br /> <blockquote><em>JACK: There&#39;s always that. I don&#39;t know, it&#39;s just...when you buy furniture, you tell yourself: that&#39;s it, that&#39;s the last sofa I&#39;m gonna need. No matter what else happens, I&#39;ve got that sofa problem handled. I had it all. I had a stereo that was very decent, a wardrobe that was getting very respectable. I was so close to being complete.</p> <p>TYLER: S**t, man, now it&#39;s all gone.</p> <p>JACK: All gone. </p> <p>TYLER: Do you know what a duvet it?</p> <p>JACK: Comforter.</p> <p>TYLER: It&#39;s a blanket, just a blanket. Now why guys like you and I know what a duvet is? Is this essential to our survival? In the hunter-gathered sense of the word? No. What are we then?</p> <p>JACK: You know, consumers.</p> <p>TYLER: Right. We&#39;re consumers. We&#39;re by-products of a lifestyle obsession. Murder, crime, poverty -- these things don&#39;t concern me. What concerns me is celebrity magazines, television with five hundred channels, some guy&#39;s name on my underwear. Rogaine, Viagra, Olestra.</p> <p>JACK:Martha Stewart.</p> <p>TYLER: F**k Martha Stewart. Martha&#39;s polishes on the brass of the Titanic. It&#39;s all going down, man! So f**k off, with your sofa units and your green stripe patterns. I say never be complete. I say stop being perfect. I say let&#39;s evolve and let the chips fall where they may. But that&#39;s me, I could be wrong, maybe it&#39;s a terrible tragedy.</p> <p>JACK: No, it&#39;s just stuff.</p> <p>TYLER: Well, you did lose a lot of versatile solutions for a modern life.</p> <p>JACK: F**k, you&#39;re right.</p> <p>Tyler offers Jack a cigarette. </p> <p>JACK: No, I don&#39;t smoke. My insurance will probably cover it, so...</p> <p>Tyler stares at him</p> <p>JACK: What?</p> <p>TYLER: The things you own, end up owning you.</em></p></blockquote> <p>Let me repeat that for dramatic effect; the things you own end up owning you.</p> <p>The more I thought about that, the more it made perfect sense to me. It also made me think hard about the purchases I have made that have, in fact, ended up owning me.</p> <p>The first is a no-brainer. My house owns me, no question. Even though I bought a home very much within my reach, my mortgage is still a substantial part of my monthly income. I figure, after taxes, I spend at least the first 10 days of every month just working to pay my mortgage. If I don’t pay it, we’re homeless, I face foreclosure and the risk of a huge black stain on my credit report. </p> <p>Then there are the cars. Two of them. I don’t drive anything classy and super-expensive like a BMW or a Mercedes, but my humble VW Passat and my wife’s Pacifica still take another huge chunk of my salary. Again, defaulting on these loans means bad credit and, of course, no transportation.</p> <p>We also have credit card payments, most of the bulk of those came from transferring my UK student loans to US credit cards (the exchange rates and transfer fees were killing me). I don’t feel as bad about those. But anything else we put on a credit card in the past, from a simple CD to a piece of furniture, is now owning me until I pay it off. </p> <p><strong>What’s the solution then?</strong><br />In Fight Club, Tyler Durden took lack of ownership to the extreme. He didn’t work (other than his gross soap sideline), he lived in a house that had been abandoned, he had no real possesions and he bought nothing other than food and clothing (and, well, ammo). For most of us, owning nothing is not really an option.</p> <p>But what we can do is make a determination between wants and needs. Most of us need a car, but no one needs a $70k BMW. That’s a want, and unless you throw down cash, that BMW will own a part of you for roughly 3 to 7 years. </p> <p>You need a place to live. But do you need a 6-bedroom, 4-car garage, media center home in 5000 square feet of luxury living? That, once again, is a want. And unless you’re Bill Gates or Warren Buffett, you won’t be bringing that kind of cold, hard cash to the table. For most of us, that decision is a 15 to 30 year commitment. And in that time, the house is owning you.</p> <p>Even if you’re just thinking about slapping a fancy meal or a new DVD onto a credit card, think again. If you really want it (no one needs either, they’re wants) then ask yourself if you can pay cash, or use the debit card. You don’t need to be paying anywhere from 6% to 26% interest on either of those things. </p> <p>It’s a fact of life that at least 95% of us will end up being owned by the things we have. It’s unavoidable. But just how much they own us, and for how long, that’s a decision we can all make. </p> <p>Thanks Chuck Palahniuk and David Fincher for a great, great film.

They all talk about networking. They all talk about researching the company--knowing what they do and what they need done. They all talk about &quot;creating&quot; a job--presenting yourself as a solution to a problem. I read the books, but I didn't understand what they meant, until I saw this really bad movie.</p> <p>The movie was &quot;Let's Get Harry,&quot; and it's bad enough that the director didn't want his name on it. (It's an &quot;Alan Smithee&quot; film.) It's well worth missing, except for one bit near the beginning.</p> <p>The set-up is that a small-town American has been taken hostage in Colombia. The guy's friends decide to mount a rescue mission. Realizing that they'll need help, they take out an ad for a mercenary.</p> <p>The good bit is the stretch where the heros hire their mercenary. They interview a seemingly endless string of lunatics, nutcases, and losers--guys pretending to be dangerous, guys pretending to have connections, guys pretending to have mysterious pasts. Our heros are at the point of giving up, knowing that any these clowns would be worse than useless in a dangerous situation, when Robert Duvall shows up--and shows us how it's done.</p> <p>Duvall's character shows up having already done some research. He'd made the connection between news reports about an American kidnapped overseas and the interview taking place in the man's home town. He'd figured out what the mission was going to be. He'd done some research on the Colombian criminal element, and figured out what group had most likely done the kidnapping. He showed up with a photo of the guy the were trying to rescue and a photo of the head of the gang that had probably done the kidnapping.</p> <p>That little stretch of film made an impression on me that the job search books never had. Here was a worked example of how to create a job:</p> <ol> <li>Figure out what the employer's problem is.</li> <li>Figure out what the solution is.</li> <li>Present yourself as someone who can provide the solution.</li> </ol> <p>It was a revelation to me. Until then, I'd generally taken the lazy path in looking for a job--I showed up for the interview, expecting the employer to tell me what the problem was and what they'd decided to do to solve it. Then, I presented myself as someone with the expertise to do the work. In a high-demand field like software engineering, the lazy way can be successful, but it's never going to give you as good a job as one that's created for you.</p> <p>I got tempted down the path to the lazy way because it seemed so easy--and because it seemed stupid to do a bunch of work for a job I didn't even have yet. If they hired me to solve their problem, then I would. Until then, I had other stuff I'd rather be doing.</p> <p>What I didn't understand was that a position created for me could be <em>nothing but</em> stuff that I'd rather be doing. If that's the pay-off for a few hours of unpaid work, it's well worth it.</p> <p>There are plenty of insights in those job search books--good advice on networking, good advice on identifying the person who can say &quot;yes&quot; to hiring you, good advice on presenting yourself as a can-do person who can get the job done. I managed to get most of them from the books.
