do what you love

By January 18, 2012Leadership

When it comes to work or vocation, it’s common to hear: “Do what you love.”  Sounds good …

But I love eating donuts.  As much as I love donuts, I know if I only eat donuts, I’ll die a fat (but happy) man.  To be healthy, I can’t just eat what I love — sometimes I have to eat things that I know are good for me but may not be the most enjoyable experience.

Successful people don’t just do what they love (i.e., are passionate about); they also do what they are good at.  They take into account their strengths and act accordingly.  Satisfaction comes when passion and strengths are aligned.

What do you love?
