Everybody is saying the same thing about finding their passion. They’re just using different words to express it.
“The best philosophers were not academics, but had another job, so their philosophy was not corrupted by careerism.” – Nassim Taleb
“Be regular and orderly in your life like a Bourgeois so that you may be violent and original in your work.” – Gustave Flaubert
”The creative person basically has two kinds of jobs: One is the sexy, creative kind. Second is the kind that pays the bills. Sometimes the assignment covers both bases, but not often.” – Hugh MacLeod
In short, there are two types of work:
- Work that you do for fun
- Work that pays the bills
You rarely get both.
PS. There’s more on finding your passion in this week’s Philosophy/Productivity section of my newsletter.
Write your way to the life you want.
