I was planning on providing a list of criteria to consider in selecting a career…and I will at a later date. But number one on the list is so important I decided to make it a separate post. What’s number one…Be Happy! It’s the most important reason when picking any career, here’s why.
You’ll be spending 8, 10, and yes at times, even more hours at work. Next to sleeping, working occupies the second largest number of your daily hours. For some, their working hours surpass sleeping. So wouldn’t you rather be happy at your job?
I’ve heard concerns over if I do what makes me happy I won’t make any money at it. Wrong!
If you’re happy with what you’re doing, guess what, it doesn’t feel like work. You’ll find yourself wanting to spend every waking hour doing it. Eventually you’ll become so proficient, you’ll be the expert and in demand. As a result, the money will follow. Really!

Work your dream job from the start and I will guarantee you will live happier, healthier, and wealthier.
