Do Work You Love -- Workshop 3: "Own Your Career" Do Work You Love -- Workshop 3: "Own Your Career" Presentation Transcript

  • All we have in life is our time. People struggle after success. They hunger for fame, fortune, and power. But in all of these things, the same question exists - what will you do with your time? How do you want to spend your days? As Annie Dillard reminds us, “how we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” In life, you will become known for doing what you do. That sounds obvious, but it’s profound. If you want to be known as someone who does a particular thing, then you must start doing that thing immediately. Don’t wait. There is no other way. It probably won’t make you money at first, but do it anyway. Work nights. Work weekends. Sleep less. Whatever you have to do. If you’re lucky enough to know what brings you bliss, then do that thing at once. - Jonathan Harris

  • Find Your Tribe
  • “A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate.” Seth Godin
  • Make Yourself Useful
  • “Discomfort brings engagement and change. Discomfort means you're doing something that others were unlikely to do, because they're hiding out in the comfortable zone. When your uncomfortable actions lead to success, the organization rewards you and brings you back for more.” “If you need to conceal your true nature to get in the door, understand that you'll probably have to conceal your true nature to keep that job.” “Transferring your passion to your job is far easier than finding a job that happens to match your passion.”
