What's your standard?

Do you love your job? Is okay good enough? Are you satisfied with the way things are? If not, then what exactly are you going to do about it?

I believe people have natural talents and considerable amount of innate potential. I believe we spend about 1/3 of our adult life at work. I believe we all are capable of being passionate.

So if you have a job where you don't feel as happy as you potentially could be, I think you deserve better. If it's Tuesday and you're waiting for the weekend to begin, you deserve better. If you haven't grown much in your job (in some x period), why keep on going? If you don't get enough praise for the work you do, why tolerate it?

Why waste time? Why waste life? We CAN live an extraordinary life, if we choose to. No one can stop us from choosing to live an amazing life. I believe the fault is that many of us think "okay" is good enough. The voice of society often tries to convince us that its okay if we don't live our dream. "It pays the bills" is NOT good enough. Why choose something tolerable if we can choose something better? Screw the people who tell you to get a safe job and be happy with it. If you only take small risks, you are only entitled to a small life. Do you want to live a mediocre life? Didn't think so.

Set the standard higher. I know I do.

It always makes sense to start a business, freelance practice or something similar. Maybe it is a lot different in Dubai but in any country in Europe it just takes a little imagination, research and a lot of willpower to try to make something happen yourself. The willpower part is the one that I am having trouble with :P.

But try to create a job for youself, nothing to loose anyway.

And "you need a lot of money to start a business" is a myth, really!
