Wisdom That Is Meant To Be Shared

I wrote this down on Twitter last night out of the blue after a long day at work. I realised later on that I may have inadvertently stumbled across some of that crazy wisdom I seem to come up with out of the blue, so I might as well immortalise it here to share with everyone young and old.

“Sometimes the concept of work can be best summarized as getting paid doing what you love. If you can’t do that. You’re in the wrong job.”

After all, if you’re going to do it for the rest of your life, you might as well be in something that you won’t bitch and whine about for the next 40 years. Life’s too short to waste time on something you don’t like. So no matter what people say about it, the real insanity isn’t in trying to make a living out of what you love, the real insanity is trying to live out of a job you never loved for the past 20 years.

And people think I’m the oddball out.

  1. And just to add to that based on my experience, no matter how much you’ve invested in a career, if you find yourself hating it in the future, make the change and re-skill. Well worth the effort.

  2. Well worth the effort to keep on doing what you want to do rather than being forced into it. Most people don’t because they are too lazy to change their ways no matter how much they hate where they are. Good advice Cléa. 🙂

  3. Great quote, I wish I could come up with some deep stuff like that! hehe. I think if you are stuck in a job that you don’t like, I think it helps coming home, to a good home, if you know what I mean?

  4. Having a place to come back to does help, but it isn’t the solution seeing that you spend most of your day (or night) and adult life at work to begin with. You wouldn’t want a work that you hate to carryover to your home, especially if you have family. Always best to nip the problem at the bud. Love your work, the rest follows naturally.
