I’ve been doing some philosophi-zing recently. Here’s something I’ve been thinking about in reference to my future:
Should a person spend his / her life:
- Pursuing something they suck at but want to become more proficient? OR
- Improving at something they’re already pretty good at?
What if Bill Clinton had chosen to become a professional saxophonist?
I think this is uber important. For example: I love playing tennis. But I suck pretty bad. I like web design. But I’m not that good at it. Should I get better in these areas because I dig them? Or should I find my forte and hone it to perfection? Yes I know a combination of the two is the best. But what if that’s not a choice? Then what?
This is especially crucial when picking a major in college…
Why are you doing what you do for a living?
