I read this a few minutes ago on okdork.com. Click on the title above, read the entire post and then spend about 15 uninterrupted minutes thinking about it. I mean really think about because it will make you face some realities you really may not want to deal with but you MUST. I had a long talk with a close friend (I didn't even realize how close until today) this morning and I realized that I was wasting a huge amount time deciding what I wanted to do when it was staring me in the face. It's been there for six years and I didn't even realize it until last night and again this morning. I have the ability to change people lives, reduce stress, save marriages, and I've been screwing around wasting my time on hair brained schemes when I could have been making an impact.
“Is this job for the money or does this work give them fulfillment in life?”
I just wanted to pose the question for everyone else. Would you want to be doing work that just pays the bills and gives you the time to go out at night or 2 weeks a year to go on vacation? Do you want to have a job where you are leaving the world a better place than when you were born? There is a tough balance on these questions depending on how much money you have in the bank and finding your true passion in life.
