I am sure you have been asked this question. If you have not been asked, I am sure it’s a question you have thought about at some point in time. I was asked this question yesterday after a few drinks with friends at work.
If you were not working here, and if money was not an issue, what would you be doing?
It made me also think about a quote from Steve Jobs Stanford commencement speech
“If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
It’s good to reflect on this question a few times each year. I have found it best to have a book and a pencil/pen to write down your thoughts as you think about this question.
