BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, September 27th, 2007 by Alan Cohen in WHY YOUR LIFE SUCKS, AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT

“Any career short of electric creativity means you have compromised. If all you are receiving for your work is money, you are being grossly underpaid. Most people do not experience livelihood; they are more familiar with deadlihood. So it’s time to move to a new ‘hood’. When you allow your passion to guide you to your right livelihood, you will be hard-pressed to call it “work.” While the Wright Brothers were developing the first airplane, one of them told a reporter, “We can’t wait to get up in the morning!”

People who have found their true calling report that they are having so much fun, they feel like they should be paying people to let them do it. Yet they are paid well for their services, and rightfully so. Their gifts go far beyond the obvious service they perform; they are teaching (by example) authentic self-expression, which cannot be translated into dollars.”

Alan Cohen, in “Why Your Life Sucks, and What You Can Do About It”
