[Quote No.54568] Need Area: Work > General
"[Vocation and career:] Never have so many people felt so unfulfilled in their career roles, and been so unsure what to do about it. Most surveys in the West reveal that at least half the workforce are unhappy in their jobs. One cross-European study showed that 60 per cent of workers would choose a different career if they could start again. In the United States, job satisfaction is at its lowest level — 45 per cent — since record-keeping began over two decades ago." - Roman Krznaric
From his book, 'How to Find Fulfilling Work', 2013. [Refer http://www.brainpickings.org/2013/04/23/how-to-find-fulfilling-work-roman-krznaric/ ]

[Quote No.54571] Need Area: Work > General
"[Vocation and career:] Most [people] have the ridiculous notion that anything they do which produces an income is work — and that anything they do outside ‘working’ hours is play. There is no logic to that. ...Your life is too short and too valuable to fritter away in work. If you don’t get out now, you may end up like the frog that is placed in a pot of fresh water on the stove. As the temperature is gradually increased, the frog feels restless and uncomfortable, but not uncomfortable enough to jump out. Without being aware that a chance is taking place, he is gradually lulled into unconsciousness. Much the same thing happens when you take a person and put him in a job which he does not like. He gets irritable in his groove. His duties soon become a monotonous routine that slowly dulls his senses. As I walk into offices, through factories and stores, I often find myself looking into the expressionless faces of people going through mechanical motions. They are people whose minds are stunned and slowly dying." - Lewis Hyde

[Quote No.54572] Need Area: Work > General
"[Vocation and career:] Actually, there is only one way in this world to achieve true happiness, and that is to express yourself with all your skill and enthusiasm in a career that appeals to you more than any other. In such a career, you feel a sense of purpose, a sense of achievement. You feel you are making a contribution. It is not work. ...To my mind, the world would be a much pleasanter and more civilized place to live in, if everyone resolved to pursue whatever is closest to his heart’s desire. We would be more creative and our productivity would be vastly increased. Altogether too much emphasis, I think, is being placed on what we ought to do, rather than what we want to do." - William J. Reilly
Quote from his book, 'How To Avoid Work', which is a short guide to finding your purpose and doing what you love.

[Quote No.54573] Need Area: Work > General
"[Vocation and career:] The greatest satisfaction you can obtain from life is your pleasure in producing, in your own individual way, something of value to your fellowmen. That is creative living! When we consider that each of us has only one life to live, isn’t it rather tragic to find men and women, with brains capable of comprehending the stars and the planets, talking about the weather; men and women, with hands capable of creating works of art, using those hands only for routine tasks; men and women, capable of independent thought, using their minds as a bowling-alley for popular ideas; men and women, capable of greatness, wallowing in mediocrity; men and women, capable of self-expression, slowly dying a mental death while they babble the confused monotone of the mob? For you, life can be a succession of glorious adventures. Or it can be a monotonous bore. Take your choice!" - Neil Gaiman

[Quote No.54574] Need Area: Work > General
"[Vocation and career:] No matter what your age or condition or experience, the sooner you find out what you really want to do and do it the better, for that’s the only way anyone can avoid work. ...Try this approach [which is also recommended by British-born philosopher, writer, and speaker, Alan Watts]. Suppose you were financially independent and were perfectly free to do anything you wanted, what would you do, if anything? If your inclinations are at all definite, the answer to this simple question provides at least a general definition of the field which you would enjoy most." - William J. Reilly

[Quote No.54576] Need Area: Work > General
"[Vocation and career: When asked about his extreme productivity and the stringency of his 18-hour-workdays dedication to success. the inventor Edison explained:] You do something all day long, don’t you? Everyone does. If you get up at seven o’clock and go to bed at eleven, you have put in sixteen good hours, and it is certain that you have been doing something all that time. The only difference is that you do a great many things and I do one. If you took the time in question and applied it in one direction, you would succeed. Success is sure to follows such application. The trouble lies in the fact that people do not have one thing to stick to, letting all else go. [But a person cannot apply himself to anything incessantly without growing weary unless he loves it — unless it’s not work, but a passion and a vocation. And that’s the real explanation of Edison’s full use of his time that assured him his work success.]" - Thomas Edison

[Quote No.54577] Need Area: Work > General
"[Vocation and career:] Money never comes first in self-expression of any kind. Study the biographies of those who have built great fortunes, and you will learn that money came to them after they had produced or discovered something. ...In a world marked by constant change, where the rich of today are often the poor of tomorrow, due to circumstances beyond their control, the only security is your ability to produce something of value for your fellow man, and your only guarantee of happiness is your joy in producing it. True happiness lies in the pursuit of your goal, achievement in your chosen field. This must always remain primary. Whenever money becomes primary, you are on treacherous ground." - William J. Reilly

[Quote No.54578] Need Area: Work > General
"[Vocation and career:] Vocation does not [just] mean a goal that I pursue. It means a calling that I hear. Before I can tell my life what I want to do with it, I must listen to my life telling the who I am [What I must express]. I must listen for the truths and values at the heart of my own identity, not the standards by which I must live — but the standards by which I cannot help but live if I am living my own life." - Parker J. Palmer

And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle." - Steve Jobs

[Quote No.54627] Need Area: Work > General
"[Vocation and career: Do what you love and are passionate about and beware of doing anything just for the prestige... or money:] ...Prestige is like a powerful magnet that warps even your beliefs about what you enjoy. It causes you to work not on what you like, but what you’d like to like. ...If you do anything well enough, you’ll make it prestigious. ...The other big force leading people astray is money. Money by itself is not that dangerous. When something pays well but is regarded with contempt, like telemarketing, or prostitution, or personal injury litigation, ambitious people aren't tempted by it. That kind of work ends up being done by people who are 'just trying to make a living.' (Tip: avoid any field whose practitioners say this.) The danger is when money is combined with prestige, as in, say, corporate law, or medicine. A comparatively safe and prosperous career with some automatic baseline prestige is dangerously tempting to someone young, who hasn't thought much about what they really like. The test of whether people love what they do is whether they'd do it even if they weren't paid for it - even if they had to work at another job to make a living. How many corporate lawyers would do their current work if they had to do it for free, in their spare time, and take day jobs as waiters to support themselves? ...The advice of parents will tend to err on the side of money. It seems safe to say there are more undergrads who want to be novelists and whose parents want them to be doctors than who want to be doctors and whose parents want them to be novelists. The kids think their parents are 'materialistic.' Not necessarily. All parents tend to be more conservative for their kids than they would for themselves, simply because, as parents, they share risks more than rewards. If your eight year old son decides to climb a tall tree, or your teenage daughter decides to date the local bad boy, you won't get a share in the excitement, but if your son falls, or your daughter gets pregnant, you'll have to deal with the consequences. ...With such powerful forces leading us astray, it's not surprising we find it so hard to discover what we like to work on. Most people are doomed in childhood by accepting the axiom that work = pain. Those who escape this are nearly all lured onto the rocks by prestige or money. ...Although doing great work takes less discipline than people think - because the way to do great work is to find something you like so much that you don't have to force yourself to do it - finding work you love does usually require discipline. ...Much as everyone thinks they want financial security, the happiest people are not those who have it, but those who like what they do. So a plan that promises freedom at the expense of knowing what to do with it may not be as good as it seems. Whichever route you take, expect a struggle. Finding work you love is very difficult. Most people fail. Even if you succeed, it's rare to be free to work on what you want till your thirties or forties. But if you have the destination in sight you'll be more likely to arrive at it. If you know you can love work, you're in the home stretch, and if you know what work you love, you're practically there." - Paul Graham
Founder of Y-Combinator [http://www.ycombinator.com/ ]. From his 2006 article, 'How to Do What You Love'. [http://www.paulgraham.com/love.html ]

[Quote No.55307] Need Area: Work > General
"THINK AND GROW RICH: 78 years ago, a journalist studied 500 rich men and boiled down their success into 13 steps. Napoleon Hill interviewed more than 500 self-made millionaires over a span of 20 years (although he pre-dated Bill Gates). At the peak of Andrew Carnegie’s career, he crossed paths with an impressive journalist named Napoleon Hill, who he trusted to document — and share with the world — the strategies that turned him into one of the wealthiest and most successful businessmen of all time. ‘It was Mr. Carnegie’s idea that the magic formula, which gave him a stupendous fortune, ought to be placed within reach of people who do not have time to investigate how men make money,’ Hill wrote in the preface of ‘Think And Grow Rich,’ the result of his collaboration with Carnegie. In addition to analysing Carnegie, who became the richest man in the world after starting with little more than a penny upon arriving in the US from Scotland, Hill studied more than 500 self-made millionaires over a span of 20 years. His interviews and research culminated in the 1937 bestseller, ‘Think And Grow Rich,’ which shares what he calls the ‘money-making secret’ in 13 principles [Refer also to his excellent book ‘The Law of Success In Sixteen Lessons’]. There is no mention of ‘money,’ ‘wealth,’ ‘finances,’ or ‘stocks’ within Hill’s text; he takes a different approach, focusing on breaking down the psychological barriers that prevent many of us from attaining our own fortunes. This approach is still relevant today — 78 years later. …Here are Hill’s 13 steps, in his words and ours: ---------- 1. DESIRE: YOU HAVE TO WANT IT. All of the super wealthy started with a certain amount of dreaming, hoping, planning, and desiring before they became rich. They imagined riches before they saw them in their bank accounts, Hill explains: ‘Wishing will not bring riches. But desiring riches with a state of mind that becomes an obsession, then planning definite ways and means to acquire riches, and backing those plans with persistence which does not recognise failure, will bring riches.’ This is not so different from the modern-day concept of visualising a savings goal with a specific price tag. ---------- 2. FAITH: BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL. Growing rich starts with your mindset — with belief and faith that you can accumulate wealth. Hill writes: ‘Riches begin in the form of thought! The amount is limited only by the person in whose mind the thought is put into motion. Faith removes limitations!’ …Building wealth all starts with your mindset. ---------- 3. AUTO-SUGGESTION: USE AFFIRMATIONS TO REACH YOUR GOAL. Turning desire for money or success into reality requires sending your subconscious mind phrases and mantras that support your goal. You have to repeat out loud what it is that you want, and how you plan to get it, so you become obsessed with your purpose, Hill explains: ‘Your ability to use the principle of auto-suggestion will depend, very largely, upon your capacity to concentrate upon a given desire until that desire becomes a burning obsession.’ For example, if you aim to save $US1 million for retirement by putting away money every week, you would repeat, ‘I will set aside money this week to have $US1 million in retirement savings,’ as many times as possible each day. ---------- 4. SPECIALISED KNOWLEDGE: GAIN EXPERIENCES AND CONTINUE LEARNING. Knowledge is potential power. An education only becomes powerful and leads to great wealth when it is is organised and applied to life. It also must be continually sought after. You’re never done learning, Hill emphasises: ‘Successful men, in all callings, never stop acquiring specialised knowledge related to their major purpose, business, or profession. Those who are not successful usually make the mistake of believing that the knowledge-acquiring period ends when one finishes school.’ Many modern-day successful and wealthy people are such voracious readers; they never stop learning and challenging their minds. ---------- 5. IMAGINATION: COME UP WITH IDEAS AND VISUALISE YOUR SUCCESS. If you can imagine it, you can create it, says Hill: ‘Ideas are the beginning points of all fortunes. Ideas are products of the imagination ... Man’s only limitation, within reason, lies in his development and use of his imagination.’ Don’t be afraid to come up with, and develop, ideas. ‘Whoever you are, wherever you may live, whatever occupation you may be engaged in, just remember in the future, every time you see the words ‘Coca-Cola,’ that its vast empire of wealth and influence grew out of a single idea,’ Hill writes. Consider Sara Blakely, whose small, disruptive idea — making an incision in a pair of pantyhose — amounted to her booming billion-dollar business, Spanx, and rocketed her into the limelight. ---------- 6. ORGANISED PLANNING: TAKE ACTION. Once you’ve visualized your success, you need to take action and go after exactly what you want. You must act with persistence and enthusiasm. Hill explains: ‘Opportunity has spread its wares before you. Step up to the front, select what you want, create your plan, put the plan into action, and follow through with persistence … Most of us are good ‘starters’ but poor ‘finishers’ of everything we begin. Moreover, people are prone to give up at the first signs of defeat. There is no substitute for persistence.’ For instance, if you’re looking to build wealth, start with forming a financial plan, and determine exactly where you want your money to go. ---------- 7. DECISION: DEFEAT PROCRASTINATION WITH DECISIVENESS. A key trait Hill recognised in all of the individuals he studied who acquired great wealth was decisiveness. Those who settle on decisions quickly know what they want, and they tend to get what they want. He writes: ‘People who fail to accumulate money, without exception, have the habit of reaching decisions, if at all, very slowly, and of changing these decisions quickly and often’ Decisiveness is not just a trait of the wealthy, but one of the most important qualities a leader needs to possess. At the end of the day, making a bad decision is better than making no decision at all. ---------- 8. PERSISTENCE: DON’T STOP UNTIL YOU GET WHAT YOU WANT. Persistence is crucial when trying to accumulate wealth, yet few people possess the willpower required to turn their desire for money into actual money. Hill writes: ‘Riches do not respond to wishes. They respond only to definite plans, backed by definite desires, through constant persistence.’ The most successful people tend to have dealt with, and overcome, failure. ‘I’ve learned that it doesn’t matter how many times you failed,’ Mark Cuban told Smart Business. ‘You only have to be right once. I tried to sell powdered milk. I was an idiot lots of times, and I learned from them all.’ ---------- 9. POWER OF THE MASTER MIND: SURROUND YOURSELF WITH THE BEST. The wealthiest people create a ‘Master Mind‘ - meaning, they surround themselves with talented friends and colleagues who share their vision. The alignment of several smart and creative minds is exponentially more powerful than just one, Hill explains: ‘No individual may have great power without availing himself of the ‘Master Mind’ ... A group of brains coordinated (or connected) in a spirit of harmony will provide more thought-energy than a single brain, just as a group of electric batteries will provide more energy than a single battery.’ This may explain why rich people tend to make friends with other rich people. ‘Exposure to people who are more successful than you are has the potential to expand your thinking and catapult your income,’ writes self-made millionaire Steve Siebold. ‘We become like the people we associate with, and that’s why winners are attracted to winners.’ ---------- 10. THE MYSTERY OF SEX TRANSMUTATION: CHOOSE A COMPATIBLE PARTNER. Sexual energy is an incredibly powerful human energy — it creates physical life and develops emotional life — and when it is harnessed and redirected, it can enhance our creativity, passion, enthusiasm, and persistence, all which are crucial in accumulating wealth, Hill says: ‘Sex desire is the most powerful of human desires. When driven by this desire, men develop keenness of imagination, courage, willpower, persistence, and creative ability unknown to them at other times. Love, romance, and sex are all emotions capable of driving men to heights of super achievement. When combined, these three emotions may lift one to an altitude of genius.’ While this step may feel like a bit of a stretch, having a supportive partner is important to career success. Research also shows that having a conscientious spouse can boost your salary by $US4,000 a year. ---------- 11. THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND: MASTER POSITIVITY AND DISMISS NEGATIVE EMOTIONS. If you truly want to be rich, you have to plant that desire, and then your plan, into your subconscious mind. Hill writes: ‘The subconscious mind will not remain idle! If you fail to plant desires in your subconscious mind, it will feed upon the thought which reach it as the result of your neglect. Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time. One or the other must dominate. It is your responsibility to make sure that positive emotions constitute the dominating influence of your mind.’ If you want to be successful and grow rich, it is critical that the positive emotions dominate any negative ones that arise, Hill says. He was on to something. Today, research shows that positive, happier people are more likely to perform better at their jobs and are less likely to be unemployed. ---------- 12. THE BRAIN: ASSOCIATE WITH OTHER SMART PEOPLE AND LEARN FROM THEM. Our brain is a ‘transmitter and receiver of thought vibrations’ — it absorbs thoughts from other individuals surrounding us — making it even more important to associate with intelligent, creative, and positive individuals. Hill writes: ‘Every human brain is capable of picking up vibrations of thought which are being released by other brains ... The Creative Imagination is the ‘receiving set’ of the brain, which receives thoughts released by the brains of others.’ This principle is simply application of the Master Mind principle. It takes it one step further; rather than just surrounding yourself with people who are smarter and better, use the members of your group to find solutions to problems or brainstorm ideas. Hill calls this ‘blending of several minds into one,’ and suggests sitting down with a small group of people and diving deep into the problem at hand. ---------- 13. THE SIXTH SENSE: TRUST YOUR GUT. The final principle — the ‘sixth sense’ — occurs only after you’ve mastered the other 12 principles. You’ll experience a sort of mind-shift, Hill says: ‘Through the aid of the sixth sense, you will be warned of impending dangers in time to avoid them, and notified of opportunities in time to embrace them.’ While this principle isn’t the most straightforward - Hill admits it is generally not attained until age 40 - his basic claim is that your intuition will change. You’ll have achieved a level of wisdom that will allow you to start making smart financial and life decisions naturally. Although it takes a while to master the final step, you can still get a lot out of the other 12 principles, Hill says: ‘No matter who you are, or what may have been your purpose in reading this book, you can profit by it without understanding the principle described in this chapter. This is especially true if your major purpose is that of accumulation of money or other material things! The chapter on the sixth sense was included, because the book is designed for the purpose of presenting a complete philosophy by which individuals may unerringly guide themselves in attaining whatever they ask of life!’ " - Kathleen Elkins

"[Competence and the art of excellence:] In the same way that there's an art to crafting surfboards or an art to designing cars, there's an art to pumping gas or being a garbage man. No matter how much you're being paid or what you're doing as a career, you need to embrace the art of it and not be afraid of the artist in you... Find the art in everything you do!" - Andrew Kevin Walker
He wrote the blockbuster movie, 'Seven', starring Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman.

"Good [free market capitalist] economic policy involves the art of relaxing constraints where they are binding [and restrict human creativity to better meet customer needs, for example at the expense of politically powerful existing businesses], and imposing constraints where their absence allows the activities of some to injure or violate the rights of others [as the incentives, perversely reward the market segment to race to the bottom, for example with fraud, force, misinformation or ever lower investment in occupational health and safety standards]." - John P. Hussman, Ph.D.

"[Vocation and career:] When a young artist comes to me and says, 'I want to be famous and rich,' I ask him to leave because this is not the reason to make art. Those things are just side effects that you may be lucky enough to achieve. Your reason for doing art should be much deeper. You know you are an artist if you have to do art - it's like breathing and you have no choice. Nothing should be able to stop you." - Marina Abramovic

[Quote No.55848] Need Area: Work > General
"[Vocation and career - finding your true self:] For the most important inquiry, however, there is a method. Let the young soul survey its own life with a view of the following question: 'What have you truly loved thus far? What has ever uplifted your soul, what has dominated and delighted it at the same time?' Assemble these revered objects [ideas, experiences, etc] in a row before you and perhaps they will reveal a law by their nature and their order: the fundamental law of your very self. Compare these objects, see how they complement, enlarge, outdo, transfigure one another; how they form a ladder on whose steps you have been climbing up to yourself so far; for your true self does not lie buried deep within you, but rather rises immeasurably high above you, or at least above what you commonly take to be your I." - Friedrich Nietzsche
(1844 - 1900), German philosopher. Quote from his essay, 'Schopenhauer as Educator', Nietzsche's third Untimely Meditation.

[Quote No.55892] Need Area: Work > General
"[Vocation and career:] Work is more often a source of frustration than one of fulfillment for nearly 90 percent of the world's workers. Think of the social, emotional, and perhaps even economic waste that this statistic represents. Ninety percent of adults spend half their waking lives doing things they would rather not be doing at places they would rather not be. [According to a recent Gallup study of 230,000 full-time and part-time workers in 142 countries, only 13% of people feel engaged and fulfilled by their jobs.]" - Barry Schwartz

[Quote No.55915] Need Area: Work > General
"[Vocation and career:] Most [people] have the ridiculous notion that anything they do which produces an income is work — and that anything they do outside 'working' hours is play. There is no logic to that. [...] Your life is too short and too valuable to fritter away in work. If you don't get out now, you may end up like the frog that is placed in a pot of fresh water on the stove. As the temperature is gradually increased, the frog feels restless and uncomfortable, but not uncomfortable enough to jump out. Without being aware that a chance is taking place, he is gradually lulled into unconsciousness. Much the same thing happens when you take a person and put him in a job which he does not like. He gets irritable in his groove. His duties soon become a monotonous routine that slowly dulls his senses. As I walk into offices, through factories and stores, I often find myself looking into the expressionless faces of people going through mechanical motions. They are people whose minds are stunned and slowly dying. [...] Actually, there is only one way in this world to achieve true happiness, and that is to express yourself with all your skill and enthusiasm in a career that appeals to you more than any other. In such a career, you feel a sense of purpose, a sense of achievement. You feel you are making a contribution. It is not work. [...] To my mind, the world would be a much pleasanter and more civilized place to live in, if everyone resolved to pursue whatever is closest to his heart's desire. We would be more creative and our productivity would be vastly increased. Altogether too much emphasis, I think, is being placed on what we ought to do, rather than what we want to do. [Also there is too much emphasis on money...] In a world marked by constant change, where the rich of today are often the poor of tomorrow, due to circumstances beyond their control, the only security is your ability to produce something of value for your fellow man, and your only guarantee of happiness is your joy in producing it. True happiness lies in the pursuit of your goal, achievement in your chosen field. This must always remain primary. Whenever money becomes primary, you are on treacherous ground." - William J. Reilly
Career counsellor. Quote from his book, 'How To Avoid Work', published 1949.
