Which comes first, the job, or the job we love?

Which comes first, the job, or the job we love? In my line of work, I seem to see a lot more than most. It’s scary how many unhappy workers there are.

Do we love our job? Have we ever had a job we loved? Are we still looking for work that we would love to do?

Be careful how much we love our job:

  1. We either own our business, or it owns us.
  2. Our boss owns us if we are unwilling to walk away

Yeah, it’s a conundrum. Our job as a great leader is to be remarkable, starting with owning our situation.
