10 Quotes for loving the work you are doing

1 – It all begins with the quality of your work:

The secret of joy in work is contained in one word - excellence.



2 – Through excellence, you can find joy and purpose in any task:

If it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures



3 – But also remember that you can make big changes in your career:

If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?


4 – Whether you want to become a writer:

And if you can do it for the joy, you can do it forever


5 – Or whether you want to go into IT:

We never thought that we would make much money out of the thing. We just loved writing software.


6 – As long as you love what you do:

I think the foremost quality - there's no success without it - is really loving what you do.


7 – You will naturally make more and more money from it:

The law of work seems unfair, but nothing can change it; the more enjoyment you get out of your work, the more money you will make


8 – But remember that it’s never just about the money:

The people who make it to the top - whether they're musicians, or great chefs, or corporate honchos - are addicted to their calling

9 – There are more important things than financial success:

never continue in a job you don't enjoy
