Don’t love what you do. Do what you love! When I first started my business nearly 25 years ago, I would leap out of bed every morning at 5:30 eager to get down to work. I loved it. Well, I admit that over the years, there were some long stretches when I found myself bored, restless, trapped.
The good news is that I always found a way to reinvent myself — branching out into new areas, introducing new products, changing the entire direction and structure of my business. As a result, these days, I still manage to wake up many mornings feeling like it’s Saturday, a day of relaxing fun, because I love what I do…again.
My point: Re-invent yourself if necessary, but do find a way to keep your heart and your attitude revved up and super excited about what you do, even if you have to turn things inside out now and then. Work hard. Make money. Most of all, have fun. — jri
