Alan Watts says it beautifully,
“If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you’ll spend your life wasting your time. So I always ask the question, what would you like to do if money were no object. You do that, and forget the money. And after all, if you do really like what you’re doing, it doesn’t matter what it is, you can eventually become a master of it, and then you’ll be able to get a good fee for whatever it is.
Therefore it’s so important to consider this question… What do I desire?”
So many of us go on day after day, doing things we don’t like doing, just for the pay cheque at the end of the month.
Of course, we have to! How else are we going to pay the bills?
But we do have a choice.
We have a choice to analyze and become aware of our situation.
We have a choice to take a action in our situation.
I’m not saying if you’re unhappy in your job you should make a choice to quit immediately. But you can make a choice to start making plans to leave eventually. That’s making a choice.
You can make a choice to start exploring what you’d do if money were no object. You can start educating yourself on that subject and slowly move in the direction of making it your side project.
Make an effort to do just one small thing everyday towards creating your dream job.
Many highly successful entrepreneurs started out with a small side project while they were working their full time jobs.
So as Alan Watts asks… What do YOU desire?
And so I ask… What are YOU going to do about it?
