"If you love what you do you will never work a day in your life...."
Trying to make money from one's passion is quite the cliche generator.
Our bud Anita Bruzzese at Gannett talks about a successful Harvard lawyer who felt empty and depressed.
So she chucked her briefcase and started writing. She self-published a book on chucking your briefcase, basically, and was discovered by a major publishing house, and well...the rest is happiness history.
Gallup found that 70% of workers are not engaged at work.
"True passion is your greatest economic security," this woman gushed.
She suggests you take your pulse--are you excited over what you are doing.
Don't try to define your passion right away. Let it be--and grow.
Stop planning--you can't plan an inspired life.
Stop listening to doubters.
Well--here I am waiting to be discovered...anyone? I notice I did not get a MacArthur grant. Drat!
You have to be kind of hard-headed about such blithe advice--especially if you plan to revisit the grocery store at some point.
