I start a new job today and I am reminded of how I felt at my last one. When you are truly doing what you love, it doesn’t feel like work. You can get lost in it to the point where the day flies by and you are excited to go back the next day. Sure, you may prefer being at the beach to being at your job, but there is an intrinsic reward which comes from working in your essence that is not available from vacation.
When seeking a job, or when deciding to seek a job, ask yourself if this truly feels like work. What is it that has your job feel less like work and more like being you? Incorporate that into your conditions of satisfaction, and seek based on that. Do not be quick to decide that a certain work role doesn’t exist until you at least spend the time to identify exactly what it is.
Work in your essence. If you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.
