I spent a good portion of my afternoon thinking about the disconnect that most of us feel between how we make our livings and the things we would prefer to be doing. Are people lying to us when they tell us we can find our perfect work and that we can do the things we love — expecting the money will follow?
I don’t have answers to those questions, but it’s something I wanted to talk about, so I made a quick-and-dirty video to air my frustrations and thoughts.
Are you doing something you love? Would you rather be doing something else instead? Are you stuck doing something because it’s the only way you know to make a living? I’ve sometimes done things I’ve loved and other times done things simply for the money. I’m still looking for the way to be my best self and be paid handsomely for it.
Check out the video below for my thoughts if you’re interested.
