The difference between doing what you love, and loving what you do

There’s a subtle but important difference between doing what you love, and loving what you do.

When you do what you love, the only thing driving you forward is your love for doing something. As much as I value curiosity, that’s not enough.

You have to also love what you do. When you love what you do, you do it even through discomfort. You take pleasure in fighting The Resistance. You take pride in the very act of work.

So, go ahead and do what you love, but you may have to dig deeper to also love what you do.
