Listen to Your Heart

Whenever I hear those words, the next ones that pop into my head are “when he’s calling for you…” Being a huge sucker for older pop music, this song holds a special place in my heart (there’s a pun there, I just can’t find it). This time the reference is different – a post that I came across on Trilby Jeeves’ lovely blog. She was reposting from Karl Staib’s Work Happy Now, and this quote jumped out at me:

Your mind, heart, and cells want to do amazing work. They want work they can get lost in, be so consumed that time ceases to exist. The best way to do this is to find a deeper purpose behind your work. If you are working for the pay check the internal train will stall on a regular basis. There is never enough money to com­pensate you for your time away from things you truly love.”
