Do what you love anyway

This lovely post from Big Think, got me thinking. A long time fan of Malcolm Gladwells writings, it was nice to see this insight. What Gladwell says is very simple, keep doing what you love, whether you see an immediate payoff or not.

And we know it, instinctively, but we keep getting distracted by short term speedbreakers.

Keep focused on work and don’t worry about the results.

Which can be reinterpreted as Do what you love and success will follow.

Which is essentially what Mr. Gladwel is saying.

Therefore as he says, Do what you love – whether it succeeds or not, you will still be doing what you love! And what is a greater payoff than that!

Sometimes, random reading and thoughts come and pop into our minds at the right time (call it coincidence, providence, confirmation bias or anything else). Just when you thought you had it all figured out, there is a googly to keep you thinking yet again. Such it goes...
