Work a Job You Love and It Won’t Feel Like Work

At a recent conference a woman came up after my presentation and asked, “What do you attribute your busy schedule to?

I thought for a moment.  Then in almost a gut reaction I said, “I try to work when no one else dares to work.”

“What do you mean?” she asked.

I work at times no one is working so I have very little competition.  No, I am not so much of a work-a-holic as I am driven by a passion for what I love to do.

Yes, I love my job (That statement alone puts me in a group of much less than 15% of the general population).  I am doing what I enjoy and it blesses me to do it.  And it seems to bless many others, too.

Having said that… I don’t have a problem doing my job on days that I don’t feel as motivated as on other days.  I don’t mind working when I don’t see continual success.  If you love what you do, then on your worst day, you are doing alright.  On your best day… well, you can figure that out.
