Do you like what you do?

I read an article in The New York Times recently that stuck out to me.  It was about the importance of liking what you do and the negative emotional and financial implications that arise when you don’t.  Perhaps the subject matter hit a little too close to home.  Let me provide some context:  When I decided to move back to Nashville after a 6-year stint in New York City, I was burnt out on a career filled with corporate ladder climbing and yes, a lot of success by anyone’s standards. I had a great title. I was making more money than I’d ever made. I was living the dream in the big city!  If I’m honest, I was also unhappy.

Moving back to Nashville to work for roux has been a rewarding experience.  One full of fun. A happy one.  And for that, I’m grateful.

    Great article! We’ve probably all had those jobs/supervisors from hell that we loathed. Loving what you do is such a freeing experience. You gain freedom to excel at your job, maintain an enjoyable work/life balance and to try new ideas without the fear of failure.

    I found it interesting in the article when mentioned “people care about the present mainly in the present. They do not really care about it in advance.” Sometimes we have this idea of what we want in the future but it’s not always based on things that make us truly happy. A good reminder for us to stay true to ourselves and be more intentional towards the things that bring real joy.
