  1. WOW!!! Great article indeed, I enjoyed it, the work we do must be our passion, what we derive pleasure in, unless that it will be annoying to us always, people who are happy with their work are more productive. If you own a business, then it really is in your best interest to ensure that you support employee happiness, this is a real fact because human capital is essential to be successful in business, if employees are not happy, productivity will be very low. The best way to enjoy most is to turn our passion for money. Excellent write-up, thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks for sharing that story about your friend. She has come up with a cool business idea. I like what you said in the first paragraph about the whole thing about Fridays and Mondays. I can relate and I sort of adopted a unconventional lifestyle in which there is really no such thing as Friday or Monday. Instead of thinking of it as like a work week and a weekend I just sort of live each day with balance. I like living this way. It’s not about getting burnt out for 5 days straight and then having like two days to sort of recover from that it’s more about just having a balance between activity and rest and different activities within the frame of each day.

    I am trying to think if I know anyone who could be featured in this type of section. Brian Johnston comes to mind. He made this thing called philosophers notes which was summaries of books that he liked to read. I used to listen to his podcast and he had a lot of cool things to say about how happiness has to come first instead of the other way around. He was a good influence in my life. I’m sure there are other people but no one in particular pops into mind right away.

    1. Charles, I do love the way you think. That’s an awesome way to live. We’re gradually streamlining our lives so that we too can start living with more balance. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. 

  3. This is so true. I once heard someone complain in the elevator about another Monday and start to verbally dream of Friday… when someone else commented that “they shouldn’t wish their life away”. It was a short and simple statement, but held a lot of truth. Hopefully it was a message that resonated enough to be a catalyst for them evaluate the path they were on to know whether they were just having a tough day or ready to chart a new path. 

    1. Gosh, Aly, that’s a powerful statement right there. Don’t wish your life away. It really makes you think, doesn’t it? Thanks for sharing that experience.

  4. Hi!  This post was an excellent motivational push I needed today, thanks so much.  I’m interested in pursuing something that is more in the nonprofit sector than might be considered a business, but I seriously, seriously love it.  So I’m glad to read this post reminding me that loving what you do means you don’t have to work another day in your life!  I love that quote.  I am also completely unsurprised by the statistics on the infographic.  Happy people in general work better.  People who hate their lives do not perform well at all.  I also never heard of a professional organizer until today, so thanks for that!

  5. What an honor to be featured in your blog, Kevin and Jade. It was never an easy ride getting to where I am and I must say that there are still a lot to learn. It does take a lot of courage to follow your heart but isnโ€™t that what dreaming and loving something/someone is all about. All the best to both of you! I love the concept of your blog and what a joy to know that you are doing this together. โ™ฅ๏ธ

    1. Thank you, Issa, for the kind words. Your journey is an inspiration to us and we’re sure, will prove inspirational to others. <3 Here's to more success and continued bliss!
