This is one of my favorite quotes. It’s always on my mind and I think that’s enough inspiration as any to share it with you now.
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”
– Steve Jobs
Write it down, memorize it, come back to it next week, or read it and let it go – trust that whatever you need from this quote right now will be revealed to you. I originally published this in October of 2017 but wanted to bring it back to the forefront for anyone who needed a more recent reminder.
In this moment, simply remember that no matter what you’re still looking for in life – a fulfilling job, relationship, spiritual life, or something else – when your expectations are clear and your values are in order, you’ll be that much less likely to settle for less than what you truly want. It won’t be easier, but it might be a little clearer.
