“You’ve got to find what you love and that is as true for work as it is for lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you’ve found it.” Steve Jobs
Finding the right thing to do is as difficult as finding the right person. If you marry the wrong person, you’ll never be happy. The same goes for work. Do a job you don’t love and you’ll never be truly happy.
The best work is done by those who love what they’re doing. When you find a job that you love, it no longer becomes work, it becomes an obsession that you will excel at.
Never settle for a job you don’t love. Doing a job you don’t love is the same as marrying someone you don’t love. Life becomes a burden. Happiness would always be out of reach.
If you haven’t found what you love, keep looking. As with a lover, the job that you’ll love is out there somewhere. Use the same strategy in finding the right job as you would in finding the right lover. Trying different jobs is the equivalent of dating. Rather than lowering your standards, look in the right places and you’ll find the right job, and the right lover.
Finding one will make you content. Finding both will make you happy and successful.
