Most people spend roughly 80,000 hours working in their lives. If you want to make a substantial impact on the world, your career is probably your best opportunity.
This means it's worth thinking hard about how to use this time most effectively. For example, if you switch to a new job or career path and do 1% more good as a result, it's worth spending hundreds of hours to make that change. And it's possible to do much, much better than that.
