Elizabeth Gilbert on Hobbies, Jobs, Careers, & Vocation

In the same way that Eat, Pray, Love has resonated with so many people and for me personally her book Big Magic has, there's never an instances when I don't make the effort to find a quiet corner in the house, put on my noice-canceling headphones and really listen to a latest Elizabeth Gilbert talk and this latest one really set me in place and I really encourage you to view it especially if you're the type that's been questioning your next move in life with regard to your profession.

Elizabeth says, “just recognize your job doesn’t have to be your whole life. Your life can be outside of that.” This is particularly important to recognize because while we may spend more of our day time at work than anywhere else, it becomes easy to identify yourself as someone who just works non-stop and that your are your job/career and so you fail to discover a pastime outside of work to clear you mind. For me it's photography but for you it can be anything else. You are your own person but you'll never conscious of that if you don't take the time to discover it.
