Everybody wants to have an optimized life. In fact, there are hundreds of books, seminars, and trainings devoted to this topic. Nevertheless, there is actually one simple thing you can do to optimize your life: do what you love.
Sounds simple, right? Yet doing what you love can really maximize many aspects of your life. A lot of good things will naturally happen in your career, family, and relationship.
How can that be? Here are five reasons why doing what you love can optimize your life:
- You will enjoy your time
Since you are doing what you love, you won’t feel burdened doing it. You will have fun and happy time. You will be happier than before. This thing alone is a great reward of doing what you love. Who doesn’t want to have a joyful day?
- You will work more effectively
Since you enjoy your time doing your works, naturally you will devote more time and energy into it. There is no such thing as “lazy” or “not in a good mood of doing it”. As such, you will accomplish more and become more productive.
- You will produce higher-quality work
Not just the quantity is higher, the quality will also be higher. Again, because you really like it, you will pour more of your time and energy into it. That allows you to think more about your works, thinking about how to make them better and better. As a result, the quality of your works will be improved.
- Your work will have touches of passion
This the the key difference between good work and great work. Everyone can tell the difference, and you can too. Works which are done with passion not only have higher-quality, but also have emotional value attached to them. The work is filled with the passion of the creator and that energy is present in the work.
- You will have a fulfilling life This is probably the most important reason of all. When you follow your heart, you can create a fulfilling life. You follow what your heart tells you, and you follow your purpose. That’s how you have a fulfilling life.
In my humble opinion, following your heart and your passion is what life is all about.
