Thought Quotes:

“If you were just honest with yourself that you don’t like that career and you took the steps to make a real change, not just a lateral movement to another job you hate, but a real change, you can discover what you love to do.

“What part of your identity do you have to change everyday to fit into this job?”

“Jobs are for money. Careers are for passion or fun or fulfillment The ideal situation is if you have a job that turns into a career that you get paid for.”

“You better love your job because you’re giving away half your life! Probably more. More than half your life to something you love or don’t love.”
