An underused word (like the word “grace”). Nice piece from Hugh McLeod at Gaping Void (hat tip to tweet from Dave Gurteen). Message to the next generation to notice the difference between a life’s work and a career in a day job. In this case, based on the advertising business, but good for bringing in this Joe Campbell quote too:
“Follow your bliss.
Find where it is,
and don’t be afraid to follow it.”
Joseph Campbell – The Power of Myth
A common message from the wise to those starting out. Here my favourite plea from Richard Russo in his 2004 commencement address.
“While you search for this work, you’ll need a job. [It’s] a fine thing to be good at your job, as long as you don’t confuse it with your work, which it’s hard not to do.”
