Important Work

Words of wisdom from Seth Godin this Labor Day weekend. May all of us, including our children, do “important work”.

“Instead of, ‘do what you love,’ perhaps the more effective mantra for the entrepreneur, the linchpin and maker of change might be, ‘love what you do.’

If we can fall in love with serving people, creating value, solving problems, building valuable connections and doing work that matters, it makes it far more likely we’re going to do important work.”
