#60 – Why Success is a Bad Thing if You’re Doing Shit You Hate

Everyone hears the word “success” and instantly thinks of fame and fortune. But we all know (or should know) that happiness doesn’t actually come from money. Unfortunately we all have to figure this out for ourselves.

In this episode I talk about mundane tasks, people hating their jobs, feeling stuck, how money is an incentive to keep you there, going down the wrong path, making changes, how you have plenty of time every week to figure something else out, and asking questions like what do you really want in life. All of this and more. Enjoy!

  • “Do what you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life.”
  • “If you love the work you’re doing, it doesn’t always feel like work.”
