The PASSION of Jobs (from Steve)

A job vs. a career.

  • A job is something you do simply to earn money; a career is a series of connected employment opportunities.
  • A job has minimal impact on your future work life, while a career provides experience and learning to fuel your future.
  • A job offers few networking opportunities, but a career is loaded with them.
  • When you work at a job, you should do the minimum without annoying the boss. When you’re in a career, you should go the extra mile, doing tasks beyond your minimum job description.  (By J.D. Roth “The Difference Between a Career and a Job”)


But I think passion is somewhere there and the recent headlines about this guy (named Jobs) is pretty much spot on regarding passion!

I’m a quote guy and I forgot where I found this – even who wrote it.  But I wrote it down on a peice of paper and it’s on my office desk, where I stare at it – everyday.

It reads:

“Passion energizes talent.  Find something you like to do so much you’d gladly do it for nothing.  If you do learn to do it well, someday people will be happy to pay you for it.  Prioritize your life according to your passion with the aim to develop the talent you have, not the one you want.  Remember that it’s better to live with the pain of risk, than the pain of regret.”

Shout out to all on the network – you know who you are!
