What to do to live a life of doing what you love.
Most of my life I have had a few constant interests, that was how technology eases our daily lives, helping people and teaching them about new things that will ease their lives, and the way that Art in any form captivates. What you will love to do is something you have never minded doing, and has never bugged you but has intrigued, and motivated you to learn more about it. With those two interests I had to figure out what I can do so that no matter what I can be paid to learn more about them, and live a life of ‘doing what I love’. (Digital) Visual arts is the cross-section between Technology and Art. With Videos and Photo I can share products and parts of my life by creating a captivating form of art for people, and I truly love doing it.
What you ‘love’ to do is what you don’t mind doing. I think that for most people they never find out what they love to do because they are waiting for the day that they run into a task that makes them blush, excited, and nervous and want to do it over and over. The thing is you have probably already run into it, like an old best friend that you never considered the beauty of before (weird I know but it is the only way I could think of explaining it at the moment, and to old best friends out there I am not interested, sorry). I think that you have to just focus on what you spend your free time learning about then just keep chasing it. As long as you find your job interesting and it is giving you the opportunity to grow stay there, but as soon as it becomes something that is holding you back, you’ll have to let it go to grow more.
To relate this to my personal life, I was working as a barista because Norman Camera had not taken me in full-time yet. Now that I am full-time, I am trying to say goodbye to the long hours and busy work over the espresso bar —I think I just like saying Im a barista, haha, it makes me feel like a cool hipster —. the point is to just find thing that you like to do and do what you believe to be great. a quote I always run by if I am ever feeling a little lost with it is “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” -Steve Jobs I hope that this helps you in your daily life please share and subscribe if you enjoyed!
