For the Love of Everything Vodka: Do You Even *Like* the Work That You’re Doing???

In: Career, Finding Your Voice, Pleasure,

I want you to really think about that for a second. Because the thing is, the Internet’s given us a fucking BUFFET of opportunity—you can start any business you want with $20, these days–but like a kid in a candy store who walks in and just starts gobbling up whatever worms are in front of his face, we, too, walked into the Internet and we were all like GIMMIE, GIMMIE, GIMMIE, GIMMIE.

And that means that there are a lot of folks out there doing things that they don’t even want to be doing, “because the timing was right” or “because they just sort of fell into it” or “because it just made sense at the time.”

Do yourself a favor: honor your curiosities.

Don’t be a slave to a business or a job that you don’t even like anymore. Don’t let the responsibilities of the past become your ankle weights of the future. Don’t assume that it’ll work itself out, or you haven’t given it enough time yet.

You have.
You’re done.
Be done.
Let it go.

And move on to something that makes you a more passionate person tomorrow—not a shell of a person who once was.
