the art of work

Your calling is not a job. It is your entire life.

When you are stuck fulfilling an obligation instead of chasing a dream, you aren’t your best self.

What we all want is to know our time on earth has meant something. We can distract ourselves with pleasure for only so long before beginning to wonder what the point is. This means if we want true satisfaction, we have to rise above the pettiness of our own desires and do what is required of us. A calling comes when we embrace the pain, not avoid it.

A calling is what you have when you look back at your life and make sense of what it’s been trying to teach you all along.

Life is not a support system for your work; your work is a support system for your life.

Fear, indecision, not knowing—these are the obstacles that keep you from moving forward. And they never go away. But if you are going to find what you were meant to do, you will have to act anyway.

Your calling is not a destination. It is a journey that doesn’t end until you die.
