Doing what you enjoy inside a job that enables you to earn a good living – something for which everyone should aim.
I recently watched a video on YouTube that some guy put together – about the ten secrets of Steve Job’s success. He took excerpts from various recordings of Job’s utterances to compile the list of ten.
Whether Steve Jobs would agree with the complete list is uncertain – I suspect not. But, nevertheless, the list is thought-provoking and was derived from a highly successful entrepreneur’s pronouncements, so I found it worthy of my consideration and time.
At seventy-eight years of age, I wondered if it was a little late to be thinking about these things. However, the more I thought about them, i.e., doing work you really enjoy, the more I came to realize the following:
I LIKE to lead, teach, think, critique, innovate, invest, and write. And I agree with Jobs – that doing what one likes to do is important.
Additionally, doing it inside a job that enables you and your colleagues to earn a good living can make for an enjoyable and even successful business career.
Fortunately, during much of my business career, I was able to do what I liked to do inside the companies that employed me. And I was able to make a good living doing it.
That was indeed a double blessing. Thank you Lord!
It’s a nice result for every working person to aspire towards.
