THIS ESSAY

This! Friggin'! ESSAY!

How to Do What You Love

Read it. Some of it is stuff we all already know. Some of it is stuff we already know restated in a new and interesting way. And some of it made me say "Of course! Why didn't I see that before?!?"

I like the comment in the essay: "But liking the idea of being a novelist is not enough; you have to like the actual work of novel-writing if you're going to be good at it; you have to like making up elaborate lies."

As someone who is finally doing what I love, I'll tell you how I got there. I went to a therapist who specializes in career counseling, and took both a personality and an aptitude test. That helped me narrow down careers that both fit my personality and that I had an aptitude for.
