Remember when you were a kid and you’d lose track of time doing your favorite thing?
That’s what being in love with your work is like.
Of course, people like being employed (and the money that goes with it).
But there are other things that matter just as much, like connection, meaning, purpose, and the rest of the narrative.
Your job is a big part of your purpose. Connecting with it, in a way that makes it possible for you to love what you do, is vital when hoping to find happiness.
A job is more than the sum of its parts.
The companies that win, will be the companies that understand this the most, especially as the next generation slowly and inevitably takes over.
