One day last week, I was wandering around Vancouver Airport waiting for Jp's flight to land so the kid and I played around in the book store (I love new books) and then wandered through some of the other shops. In one store I saw this message on a coffee cup "Do what you love, Love what you do".
Not a new phrase, I know. But it really got me thinking. First I was kinda sad, because I don't do either - not for the majority of the day. And then I started to think about what I could/should do. I heard David Foster in an interview recently say that if you didn't work Saturdays, you didn't like what you did. Hmm, maybe being self employed or having a chance for a promotion would also change my thinking about working on a Saturday. In his context, his work is so much also his passion that he 'works' all the time.
I think I should hang that message in front of me while I work, so I can think about it some more. In 10 days I'll have been working at the same company, and in almost the same position for 10 years (10 YEARS!) and although I am grateful to have a job, I would also like to move on to try something new. A change is as good as a rest don't ya know. Maybe I could do something I loved.
