I find the concept of “Do what you like, like what you do” to be very important for life. In the entertainment industry in particular I think that it is very important to find a job that you enjoy doing since the odds are that you will never make the money that you want to be making! I personally think that this holds true for anyone in any industry. Sure, it would be great to make lots of money, but I wouldn’t want to be in a job that made me not want to go to work every day.
I love doing what I do, working at the theatre. I enjoy going to work. Even though sometimes I complain, it is usually about being tired and having to get up in the morning. I work with great people, I make enough to live happily, and I have great benefits. Work is interesting and fun. I do my best to make the atmosphere for the the people who work for me interesting, educational, and fun. I even go so far as to tell people to let me know if they are not having fun because I want to know what I can do to make sure that people want to come back.
What made me think about this today is that one of my co-workers at the theatre is entertaining the idea of moving on to a different job. What he wants to be doing and what he really enjoys doing is teaching and the fact that he has a lead on a teaching position is great. It seems like he has had the itch to be doing something different for a while now so I hope that this pans out for him.
Yesterday I posted about living life and doing the things that you want to do. This is no different. For most of us, having a job is a must. There are not too many people who can really just coast through life and not do anything. So, if we have to work, if we have to do something to make a living in this world then I would rather be doing something that I like to do. It doesn’t make sense to me to spend any time working at a job that you don’t like. Do something that makes you happy and brings you some kind of fulfillment.
