The great prize in life is work worth doing

In continuation of this of my post (Aamir: I do what makes me happy), I found a very good article today that echoed my views on how I live my life.



The great prize in life is work worth doing


People have forgotten that "far and away the best prize that life offers is a chance to work hard at work worth doing," as the former American President Theodore Roosevelt once observed.

For the first time in history, young Indians have begun to ask: what do I really want to do in life? The lucky few will discover a passion and make a living doing work they enjoy, and like Steve Jobs they will win the prize of life!

Passionate work touches the core of one's being. The majority, alas, will live unrequited lives, making a living, not making a life. A tragic loss when you think that one spends a third of one's life working.
