Doing what you love
By jimgris on Aug 18, 2004
Every wealthy person I've ever spoken to has told this: "Do what you love to do, make it into a business, and the money will come. And if the money doesn't come, it will not matter because you'll be doing what you love and you'll be happy." A bit circular, but I get it. The key, they all stress, is the "love." That has to come first, so it pervades your every thought and every action. Sounds nice. And I believe them, too. I just need to find that one thing I love to do, that's all. That's a lot, though.
This article in The Japan Times talks about Ken Honda, a 36 year old millionaire in Nagano. He's semi-retired, so he decided to survey Japan's wealthiest to see what makes them tick. I guess he needed something to pass the time. Anyway ... one of his main conclusions? Yep, you got it:
"They make a living out of what they really enjoy, as opposed to most people who have jobs they don't like."
"Really enjoy" ... "Love" ... close enough.
I'm still looking .... any ideas?
