“Do what you love to do” is such fantastic and simple career advice.
For once you have met your basic needs, who cares about that bigger paycheck?
Plenty of rich people are miserable, after all.
But how much better would it be to be satisfied in your work than to be apathetic about it
And just like Cranston says – who knows – you might just become better at it.
I can see myself, 50 years from now, still writing.
Somehowmy heart and soul had opened up. I saw my future. I saw it so vividly it was as if I’d had a conversation with my older self. At that precise momentI conjured a credo that would guide me for the rest of my life: I will pursue something that I love—and hopefully become good at it, instead of pursuing something that I’m good at—but don’t love.
