There’s a Difference Between Being Proud of “The Work You Do” and Being Proud of Yourself

Floating through life, without ever thinking about much, is way too easy.

You could plow through your to-do lists, keep your head down, busy yourself endlessly, and then wake up in twenty years and realize:

I gave my life away, like a trinket to be bartered, and today I look around me and realize: It was a bad deal.

Here’s a soberingly serious question: Do you actually like what you do? Does it energize you, the way a trip to Greece, might, or the way it feels when you step onto the dewy, ice cold grass and actually exhale?

There is a difference between being proud of “the work you do,” and being proud of your work.

Having a title is not the same as having self-respect.
