Rule Number 1: Do What You Love

Laugavegur trekking route, Iceland

  1. Do what you love
  2. Do it very, very well
  3. Do it with energy, passion, imagination…

…and if you do all that you might end up getting paid to do what you love. Don’t focus on the pay when you start. Focus on doing what you love, doing it very, very well, and being the best in your little niche.

 

I wrote about this subject earlier in the month. Have a look here.

    Great rule, I totally agree except, in a way, I think being paid for doing what you love tarnishes it a little (well it does for me anyway).

  2. Fully agree! That’s what we do here, it makes our own lives and the results of our work so much better than if we had to do anything we weren’t passionate about!
