Are you passionate about your job?Posted: March 2, 2011
Of course you are. It’s the hot thing to be. This is the new status symbol. If you’re not working with something you’re passionate about, you’ve lost the game.
Worth noting, though: the word “amateur” means “lover of” or “love doing”.
Someone who is “professional”, on the other hand, is a person who gets consistently the same result from doing the same work. This is generally what people pay for.
Now would you rather want to be someone who loves what they’re doing or someone who’s basically a working machine?
Going from passionate amateur to passionate professional is extremely difficult. Just keep that in mind.
