My Thoughts: I currently have 2 jobs. I have many positions, writer, sister, daughter, friend, to name a few, but I have 2 jobs. The one that I go to Monday- Friday and let go at the end of the day, this one pays the bills. Then there is my second job, the one that I work on till midnight, that I block out parts of my lazy Sundays to focus on, the one that I love to talk about and occasionally gives me enough income to watch a movie and get a sandwich.
The funny thing is regardless of their differences, I work my ass off at both of them and the result completely different. Not in the quality or product but in how feel after I complete them.
It isn’t that my first job is horrible or unbearable (although it does have it’s days) it’s just that I’m not passionate about it, not the way I am about writing.
The thing is right now as a twenty-something with bills to pay I have to do one to do the other, and one day that will change. I just love that this quote makes you really think about what you’re doing. It’s important know the difference between what you have to do and what you want, then you have to figure out the why and that is when you can eliminate what’s wasting your time. What is moving you toward your passion and what is pulling you away from it.
Don’t spend your whole life working for stress, work for passion.
