Work on Stuff that Matters

I stumbled across a few posts that are a little old, but definitely worth linking to. First I found this post by Jeremy Zawodny, on his new job at Craigslist. He talks about his new job after 6 months and refers to this post by Tim O'Reilly. Both posts are focused on three key points.
  • Work on something that matters to you more than money.
  • Create more value than you capture.
  • Take the long view.
All three points are sage advice. I was fortunate enough to work as a CPA after graduating from college. The hours were long, the work was dull and I wasn't very good at it, but you could make a lot of money. Well, l learned from the experience, that being happy is much more important than making money. If you do something that interests you and helps people, success will follow and the money takes care of itself.
