Lucky Me

without comments

Sometimes I am reminded how very lucky I am to be making a living doing something that I care about.  Seems like I’ve had a few conversations lately, and overheard a few more that have me thinking about that.  I may get a little overwhelmed with feeling busy sometimes, or get a little head spun about the details of whatever I’m working on from time to time.  My job takes up a lot of my time and a lot of my brain.   It would be really hard to put anywhere near the kind of time and attention I put into my job into something I didn’t care about for this long.  I’m lucky to work where I do, and to work with the people who I do.  And I know that working in a field that I care so much about affords me the opportunity to be better at it.  It’s funny how that works.  Maybe the best advice I can think to give to young people starting new careers is to look for work that they care about, or even just reasons to care about the work that they find.  It can make all the difference.
