Steve Jobs said, "The only way to do great work is to love what you do."
I'm very fortunate in that I do. I'm not just talking about my job, although that's included in the list. Here's my list:
° I work in IT, as a developer/programmer
° I'm the author of two novels, and lots of short stories, with plans for more
° I'm a life coach, specializing in coaching sexually alternative people
° I'm a podcaster.
All of those things are a form of work, of productivity and discipline. I have to make a conscious effort to do them.
I'm not going to lie - that's a big list. There are times when I feel stretched way too thin. I'm constantly experimenting with how to best use my time so I can make progress on all of these things.
But it's a great problem to have. I'm grateful I have so many things which call to me.
