Do What You Love, Love What You Do

One of the first things I realized while sitting at The Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar enjoying the music, and watching the musicians, was that they loved what they were doing.

Regardless of whether they “make it” and join the one percent who make a living performing their music they would always have a place, and fellow friends and musicians, to do what they loved to do.  Make music.

It was a strong reminder that if you are able to do what you love, and love what you do you may also be one of one percent who are actually able to do that. 

I always said when I was teaching, coaching, and then as an athletic administrator that I was fortunate enough to be doing what I loved to do.  I believe that is why the 37 years went so quickly. 

Like anything, there will be days that are tougher than others and make you question yourself.  However, it always comes back to knowing your why, your purpose, and what gets you going when your feet hit the floor in the morning.

Do what you love, love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life.  I hope you are fortunate enough to be able to do that.

I’m cheering for you.
