We are what we do. We can’t spend 20, 30, 40 or more hours a week doing one thing, and yet be someone else. Our jobs must be harmonious with who we are.
A coworker once said, “This is not my life. I leave my life outside the door every day as I enter this building, and I pick it back up when I leave at night.” I thought, “I’m not willing to spend 50 hours a week outside of my life.”
Our jobs must be part of our life, or we waste the precious gift we’re given.
