I’m constantly amazed by the excuses you and I come up with to stop ourselves from taking a risk, diving in, and figuring out how to do more of what we love to do everyday.
The other day I was meeting with a friend to explore a different career path. What he’s doing is working in oil and gas doing something that drains his soul. What he wants to do is start a business centered on his love for the outdoors. I asked him why he doesn’t do it.
“I’m afraid it will be too much of a good thing.”
Wait, what? You’re afraid that if you leave your soul-sucking job for a more meaningful career you might become overwhelmed by having too much fun, enjoying work too much, and getting paid too much to do it? Tell that to this guy:
He makes six figures a year working five months during the summer teaching kids how to swim.
Stop the madness.
Loving your job and getting paid to do it aren’t mutually exclusive propositions.
