Find something you love to do and you will never have to work a day in your life. – Confucius
One of the purposes of this blog is to provide me, and my readers, with an opportunity to rethink some of the things I have taken for granted and believed were “the way things are”. Looking back over the many years I have been engaged in the business of life and living there is a lot to rethink.
As I mentioned in an earlier blog I spent a wonderful evening with Dr. Jane Goodall at a dinner in her honour. At the end of the evening we were chatting informally at the table where she was signing copies of her various books. I bought her autobiography and asked her to dedicate it to my young daughter, aged 12. Here’s what she wrote:
To Stephanie. Do what you love and peace will follow.
This got me thinking on some of the “beliefs” about success I grew up with. Maybe you heard and internalised some of these as well.
- Do what you …. must
- Do what you … have to do
- Do what … is required
- Do what . . . is necessary
Could it be that simple?
