The Job of Your Life with Karen Schaffer

Get out of your rut and find your passion

Excerpt #1 Discovering Passion – Within Yourself

“The first thing to accept is that you do not inherently have a passion for any one particular type of work. It is not as if one day the work of law delivers some tequila shot of passion into you and you declare, “Yes, this is it!” Or that the Good Fairy of auto mechanics tiptoes by in ballet slippers and overalls and taps you with the magic wand of passion and suddenly you are filled with an insatiable desire for engine work. No, you are the one who must first choose. You’re the one who brings the interest, excitement or juice to the job. The job is nothing but a job without you”.
