How do you define success? Is it a big pay check and a house with a picket fence? Or is it about loving what you do? If you’ve found something you’re good at AND enjoy, congratulations, you’ve hit the jackpot. We spend a third of our lives working, but that doesn’t mean we can forget about those virtues that aren’t found on a resume. This is a case for living your eulogy values, the things people will say about you at your funeral.
Also, according to Elizabeth Gilbert, there are four words we need to know: hobby, job, career and vocation. But the only one you really need is a job, and it doesn’t have to be soul-fulfilling.
