Love Mondays?

If you don’t love Mondays, then you’re doing it wrong!

Think about it. If you love what you do, then you’re going to be thrilled to get back to it. So if you’re not loving Mondays (or whatever day your workweek starts on), then you’re not doing what you love.

Stop doing that unloved stuff ASAP and start doing what you love.

But, you say that you don’t have a choice. You have to go to school because you’re a kid. Or you can’t get a job you like, so you have a job (or 2 or 3) that you hate. You have to make a living, after all.

True.

And so what?

You do have a choice.

If you’re a kid, you can embrace school and do your very best. Engage with those things that are difficult. Dig into those things which seem boring on the surface. School is your springboard to doing anything in life that you want. In other words, school teaches you where knowledge is and how to get knowledge.

Knowledge is power – the power to do whatever you want in life.

If you’re an adult working at a job you don’t like, consider what you actually want to do. Don’t be shy. Admit to yourself what you’d really like to spend your life doing. Now start working towards doing that thing. Before you know it, you’ll be doing that loved thing and having a great time.

I know this is simplistic. But some things aren’t complicated. This is one. Just do what you love.

When I was younger, I wanted to be a musician. So I practiced like crazy and became a professional trumpet player. As much as I loved it, I couldn’t make a decent living. So, I went on to another dream I’d always had. I’d always wanted to be a lawyer.

I went to law school and became a lawyer.

When I was a musician, I met a young woman and fell in love. I wanted to spend forever with her. Almost 29 years later, we’re still married.

I started aikido when I was around 17 years old and stopped training after a few years. I didn’t have time to train in the evening, because I was pursuing working as a musician. But I always wanted to go back and earn my black belt.

When my son, Alex, was young, he started training in aikido, and I went back to it. I earned that black belt I always wanted. I love aikido and wanted to spend more time training and being with aikidoists.

I opened my own dojo and get to spend time with wonderful people doing aikido.

I’ve been doing what I love for pretty much my entire adult life. It’s a really good way to live. I highly recommend it to you. Please start. Now.
