Find what you love and let it kill you. — Charles Bukowski

If you look at your career as just an exchange to get money, then know that. And know that transactional approach will get you all the way to junior middle management, where you can suffer the bone-crushing defeat that comes with knowing you’re permanently stalled. You can check your watch while you become the manager who squelches the dreams of the people who report to you.

Or you can find what you love and let it kill you. You can strive to learn everything there is to know about your business. You can practice your craft with gusto. You can love what you do. And you can let the passion flow.

You’re gonna work for 40+ years. Sure, you can try to get the maximum return for the minimum effort. I’ve seen people do it. But if you want to really go for it, do what you love. Be the best at it. Don’t think about transactions — think about doing great. When you’re the best at your craft, you’ll know. And so will everyone else.
