IDEA

Doing What You Love vs. Doing What You Hate Series. Post 1. The Primer.

Is it really worth it to spend your life pursuing a career you don’t care about? After all – once that career is finished – and it’s all said and done – the “sad” reality of it is that you do die. That’s it. It’s over. So where should our focus be when we apply to our first job, gig, or Project? Should it be financially motivated? Passion motivated? A blend of both things?

Tips on How to Think About This

*How can I integrate financial incentives into a passion focused #career ?
*What is my ideal situation?
*What am I really really good at?
*What do I do for fun?
*Have I ever studied anyone else success stories pursuing their passions and actually making money doing it

What Are The Results of Asking Yourself these questions?

Let’s hear your basic thoughts community.

It is never worth doing something that might run your errands but is not really your passion, because you will lose interest in the things you do within a month or so and after that its gonna be all boring and you would really be out of options soon as you are kind of bound to that job if you had signed a long contract of some kind, resulting in severe depression, anxiety and a nightmare to bear.

Instead! my suggestion would be to start doing what you love doing and start making a name for yourself, brand your name and work, it may be hard in the start and people may not trust you much and you might not earn a lot in the start as well but once you have passed a first few hurdles, the road will start to look more clear. Depending on your career path, people will actually start reaching you based on what you have done and since the things you have done in this case will be things you love doing, that means, no matter what they are, they are surely gonna be awesome and can easily standout of the crowd.

Hope you like what I shared, which is indeed my real life experience.

In simple words doing what we don’t want is a hell … At first it might seem, we can do it but soon we will loose interest and all we feel is frustration, helpless and depression… as rightly said above, once the work career is over and while sitting on a chair thinking about past, at an old age, all the memories that flash over our eyes would be those we don’t want ever to recall and at the end there’d only a deep regret… as life is too short to waste on something we know not meant for us …

I found my self very lucky because i,m doing what a i love. Electronics is my passion and i,m earning my bread and have a career in it. Everything depends upon your decisions.
when i passed my school and went for Engineering my father asked me to choose between electrical engineering and mechanical engineering. Both trades have very good scope for career. but i choose electronics, because i thought there is no benefit in being a bad mech. or electrical engineer. Thanks to my father for respecting my decision and supporting me.
Today i,m happy with my work, i never got exhausted because i,m just passionate about this thing.

But what will happen if i choose mech. or civil engineering? might be i’ll be an engineer and have a job but i’ll never be happy with that. i could never show my passion towards work. although i will loose my childhood dream. As Sai Prasad said i just skipped being in hell.

Listen to your parents, their advice is most important but your passion is equally important too.
hard work and passion is the key to success.
