“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking.
Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know it when you find it”
— Steve Jobs
“Am I in the right career?”
“I’m not sure if this is what I want to do the rest of my life.”
“How’s the job? “Ok. It’s a job.”
“Oh crap, another Monday.”
When you find the work you should be doing for the rest of your life, you know it. There’s no uncertainty when you find work that inspires, motivates and fires your passion. You just know it deep down. If you have a job and you’re not sure if that job is what you should be doing for the rest of your life, then you haven’t found what you love. You’re settling. Certainty and deep down knowing, means you found it. Uncertainty means you haven’t found it, you are currently settling and you need to keep looking. Look every six months, even if you have a full-time job. Every six months pursue something new as an extracurricular activity. If after six months you are not blown away with passion, move on to something else. Eventually, you will find something you love to do. You will know it when you find it.
