“Do what you love, so that you’ll love what you do!” – #Futurist Jim Carroll
One of the most inspiring things for people to do is to pursue their passion. You can see it all around you look for it – people who give up a traditional career path to follow a different one that involves something that is at the essence of their being.
Someone who might give up on a road that involves one type of education degree to do something entirely different!
I’m a futurist, but I started out as an accountant – probably one of the most bizarre career transitions of all time. Along the way, I was an an e-mail consultant, a ‘competitive intelligence professional,’ and a few other right turns along the way.
Why? Because I discovered that the connectivity from technology was going to change the world and I wanted to be a part of it.
In my neighbourhood, we have a young woman who earned a college degree, but who seems determined to pursue a pathway as a pastry chef and cook. What a wonderful thing!
Then there is my son – he wasn’t terribly enthusiastic working in an aspect of his chosen career path that involved a lot of routine, boring work. Today? He’s building a drone startup company!
Both of them are doing what they love – and certainly love what they do!
Take a look around, and seek inspiration from those who have pursued a right turn in their life.
It might be a massive struggle, but they certainly have a different perspective on the world.
