Life is better when you bring excitement to what you do and if you're passionate about everything you do, you do those things with a positive attitude, a sense of purpose, and with a level pride. When I first got into the information technology field in the late 90s, I found that an old saying I once heard suddenly was applicable to me: “if you do a job you love, you will never have to work a day in your life." I had taken a passionate hobby of mine, information technology, and turned it into a very satisfying career that paid me very well. Having said that, it wasn’t my only passion and I knew that I had to find a work-life balance that allowed me to follow these passions.
“Do what you love, and you’ll never work another day in your life.” I have heard that statement countless times in my life over the past 30 years, basically since the day I started my first, full time job, but unfortunately, I never put it into practice, since other things always took priority.
