Crossing things off

Finding out what you don’t want to do is nearly as important as finding out what you do want to do.

In my last post, I talked about working in something you love.

The rationale is simple: Work takes up time, so spend your time on something you are interested in.

But what if you don’t know what you love? You can always build up your skills while you figure it out. The most important thing is that you are growing and learning. And at the very least, when you learn there is something you don’t like, you can cross that off the list. Next time a similar opportunity presents itself, you can kindly and confidently say, “No, thank you.”


These past two posts were inspired by Seth Godin’s”Three difficult steps” blog post:

  1. Get smarter. Hurry.
  2. Solve interesting problems.
  3. Care. More.
