Do What You Love

I’ve heard it said over and over again that if you do what you love, it will seem right, and that you’ll do better in your career.  I think that it’s important to note that you are going to spend a large percentage of your waking hours working.  If that career or work is something that makes you miserable, the quality of your life is going to be very different than if you are doing something you love.  One of the reasons I started my companies is that I started focusing on what I like to do, and what I’m good at.  I also started thinking about what I don’t like doing.  Of course, I also found some interesting opportunities that I realized were available, and seized on those.  I think that focusing on what it is that makes your heart sing, and your soul hum is important.

Do you do what you love?

Entrepreneurship is hard work, and frequently involves many hard, long hours of work.  It is not unusual for me to spend 16-20 hours per day working.  The upside is that I’m able to work when it is convenient for my family, and move my working schedule around their needs.  If I didn’t like what I was doing, it would frankly be rather miserable.  But I like what I’m doing.  That’s true even if my daughter says I don’t have a “real” job.  I recognize that I’m making a difference in people’s lives, with the work that we are doing with Extension of You Home Care, and Care Patrol.   We are doing things the way that we think is the right way, by treating people the way that they would like to be treated.  We follow through on our promises, and follow up to see how the client is doing.  The way it should be.  And it makes me happy.

Entrepreneurship is sweat, and tears, and hours and hours of work.  But, it’s worth it, and it’s something that I love.

What about you?  Have you created a career for yourself that you love?
