It’s important to love what you do. Your career is such a large part of your life that committing to anything less than love for it means that you’re going to be spending a lot of time wondering “what-if” and daydreaming about the job across the hall. I don’t mean that everything has to go well with your job all the time and it always has to make you happy, that’s not how love works outside of the movies. It just means that when you’re at work, you should be giving it your everything, your attention, and you should enjoy it most of the time. In fact, I propose that your work life should mirror a healthy relationship.
