It’s Friday! And that means it’s time for another edition of Friday Asks Questions! Today’s question is:
If you could give your past self a phone call and were able to talk for only a minute, what advice would you give your younger self?
Hey Jeff, it’s me, future Jeff. I only have a minute, so I’ll try to keep it as compact as possible. Don’t just settle for any job, just because you’re “good at it”. Search for a job that you really want. One where you can use your creativity by really creating something. Not a job where you use your creativity to find workarounds, or solutions to technical problems.
This is a realization that came to me in the past weeks. I’ve always done my job because I was good at it. But just because you’re good at something doesn’t mean you have a passion for it. If it’s even remotely possible, try to follow your passions and see if you can somehow make a living off of them. For you, it will be writing, even if you don’t believe that now. So focus on that! 😉
And never search for love too hard. Love will come to you, eventually! I’ve got to go now, bye!
