Today’s Quote is from Steve Jobs

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.” — Steve Jobs
Ahhh, what a great quote. I wholeheartedly agree with what Steve Jobs is saying in this quote. I have been in roles at work that I did not love. Some I didn’t even like. It was tough to get up in the morning to go to work.
We spend the majority of our lives working. Whether it be working for someone else or ourselves, we spend more time at work than we do with our family and loved ones. Most of us enter careers because it’s something we are interested in or passionate about. Many of us enter careers because it is something we fell into. Many of us enter careers because it’s something someone else wanted us to do.
Whether you are working doing something you wanted to do, something you happened into, or are living someone elses dream for you, you want to be satisfied with your work. If you are like me, you want to believe you are doing great work.
I will tell you from experience, the times where I felt like I’ve done great work is when I was doing something that I loved doing. I have done work that I didn’t particularly like doing. I’ve done work that I had to do to make a living. I was not doing it because I loved it, I needed to make money to pay the bills.
If you are starting your career but aren’t sure what you want to do, start thinking about what you love to do. What is enjoyable to you? What are you passionate about?
Write out a list of things you like to do, that you really get excited about that you get into “The Zone” when you do it.
Put your Strengths , Passions, things you are good at and love to do on the left hand side. Put a line down the middle of the page. On the other side of the line, put Careers.
Look at your strengths, passions and things you are good at and love to do and then look up careers that will let you do what matches these items. This will be the start of your best career choices that will help you be satisfied with your work.
Do you want to do Great Work? Do you want to be satisfied with your work, your life? As Steve Jobs said,
“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.”
