Do You Enjoy What You Do?

It’s a means to an end, a paycheck or a way to get to the weekend. All explanations of how far too many people describe their career. Leadership can come from each of us but often that strength is squashed by spending time during the week to make money in order to pay the bills and perhaps have some fun once in a while.

But what if we got to enjoy our work?

Sir Ken Robinson did an 18 minute talk at TED2006 and to date, more than four million of us have watched it. As a lifelong educator, his subject was about the fact that the education system is killing creativity. He returned to TED in 2010.

You’d think he would tell us all to go to school. You may be surprised by his thoughts on the topic and how we best look to our passion and life’s calling of which few people actually do. Ken is entertaining, thought provoking and funny.

If you haven't seen this, watch it, then follow your dreams.
