Today’s post is going to be short and sweet. I watched this great speech from Tony Schwartz on the99percent earlier this week. I wanted to share it with you all.
He brings up some excellent points, makes his case very well, but he brought up one specific point that really struck a chord.
This video really got me thinking. Every professional out there – whether you’re a designer, a clerk, a firefighter, or an entrepreneur – what makes you tick?
How do you consistently produce great results or perform better than your peers?
The answer is simple – Passion.
It sounds simple. But being passionate isn’t simple.
Sure, you can be passionate about creating great logos, but are you willing to put in the long hours of accounting and tax preparation?
When you realize that your passion requires more than just a simple job duty, can you still feel as strongly about it?
Yes, you can. Just remember why you’re doing the leg-work. For your passion.
If you find that you are unwilling to do the legwork, you aren’t passionate enough about your career. Find a new one.
Unless you truly want to make a difference with your work, find new work.
Find your passion. Stop working on things you hate. Quit being “good enough.” Start being great.
When was the last time you took a leap and decided to do something you love instead of something you hate? Let me know in the comments.
