Wow, i love this approach, very simple and to the point.

Nice one :)

Are you doing what you love to do?


Avani-Mehta July 31, 2008 at 1:15 pm

For times when you can’t do what you love, start loving what you do :) hehe


Tabs July 31, 2008 at 1:35 pm

Short and sweet, I think the point you are trying to get is, i think I got this, wait for it… Doing what you love is the key to happiness.

Good one,



Kaspian July 31, 2008 at 1:44 pm

I love the simplicity!

Plus: find a way to be sustained by it (usually earning money from it but not necessarily). Otherwise you can’t spend much time doing it.

I love the blog…


Andrea Hess August 1, 2008 at 8:46 am

So simple, right? Funny how we manage to over-complicate things!

I’m happy to say that I do what I love, and I’m a very happy person.



Marelisa August 1, 2008 at 3:36 pm

How about “Be with people you love.”


Brad Spencer August 1, 2008 at 3:50 pm

Simplicity at it’s best. I think we should do what we love? :)

Sometimes, though, doing what we love also demands doing what we rather not.

I object! *gasps from the courtroom filled with the self-improvement member audience*

What if you are doing what you love, but you’re stuck in a context that reinforces negative feelings? ;)


Tiffany August 1, 2008 at 7:09 pm

What a straight-forward approach to happiness! This is fantastic advice.

Thank you.

I think you missed the other option.

Don’t hate Don’t love. Simplify.

Amen Jonathan! Amen…

Love what you do – there will come a time where struggles will be in place for the do what you love.
Love is a state of mind an action – to love – to you need to love your job. Physically love your job and what you do.
Form accoounting to toilet scrubbing if you attempt to fill with love you will be happier.
I exercise caution in the “don’t do what you don’t love”
That can be a crutch to leave tasks that are challenging and may create new ideas and innovations – through struggle comes joy joy comes Love.

@ Tabs: You’re close… Haha.

@ Matt: In that case, you’re delusional. Sorry I can’t help you. Haha.


Jonathan August 6, 2008 at 8:04 am

Okay, I just realized dianetics ads are appearing on my site. Definitely did not want that.


Tom Volkar / Delightful Work August 6, 2008 at 1:16 pm

I am and it feels grand! :)


Ken | Destiny Building August 7, 2008 at 7:39 am

Applying the KISS principle to blogging and to life. Enough said! :)


janelle August 13, 2008 at 8:58 am

lol…who knew it could be SO simple?!


Regur Giblets August 18, 2008 at 12:58 pm

WOW! This is incredible.

Thank you for changing my life. :O


Michael Moniz August 24, 2008 at 4:41 am

Simplify. It is so simple and so true. We spend so much of your lives trying to do everything when we really just need to do what we love and everything else will fal in place.


Jr. December 14, 2011 at 10:52 am

When you think about it, some of us really need to have this tattooed on our palms so that we don’t drift away and avoid doing the things we hate over and over again. Great guide.
