Watch your evenings and know your future

Yesterday a listener of my podcast sent me a quotation he thought I’d enjoy.  The quotation comes from Bertie Charles Forbes (May 14, 1880 – May 6, 1954), a Scottish financial journalist and author who founded Forbes Magazine. “Tell me how a young man spends his evenings and I will tell you how far he is likely to go in the world.  The popular notion is that a youth’s progress depends upon how he acts during his working hours.  It doesn’t.  It depends far more upon how he utilized his leisure….  If he spends it in harmless idleness, he is … Read More

Just a broken window but then…

There’s a concept in criminal thinking known as the broken window theory.  Introduced in 1982 by social scientists James Q. Wilson and George L. Kelling in an article titled “Broken Windows” it included the following example: “Consider a building with a few broken windows. If the windows are not repaired, the tendency is for vandals to break a few more windows. Eventually, they may even break into the building, and if it’s unoccupied, perhaps become squatters or light fires inside. Or consider a sidewalk. Some litter accumulates. Soon, more litter accumulates. Eventually, people even start leaving bags of trash from … Read More

You gotta pull the trigger

You gotta pull the trigger Help – I’m losing my passion for what I thought I loved. When should I discuss salary in my job negotiation? How can I find books on grief to resell on my website? I cant seem to get myself to take the next big step. I have had no problems getting interviews for jobs and the interviews seem to go great but then suddenly everything comes to a crashing halt and I don’t get the job. “You make me want to be a better man.”   Jack Nicholson in As Good as it Gets Mentioned … Read More

My passion is gone for the work I thought I loved

I love this question from a listener – What do you do when the passion is gone? Hi Dan, I’m 33 years old, and I’ve been drawing cartoons and comics for as long as I can remember. It just recently became a career after I completed two full length graphic novels in the past few years. My mission statement for my work has always been “To tell stories that are as fun to read as they are to make”, but it’s becoming something dreadful that I don’t look forward to anymore. It breaks my heart to feel that way towards something … Read More

What would happen if everyone did work they love?

Here’s a common question from a 48 Days Radio listener: Hi Dan!  There’s something that subconsciously troubles me about the notion that we should all do work we love.  Part of me feels guilty trying to focus on my passions knowing that at the end of the day, we NEED people to work in slaughter houses and be janitors etc.  Obviously, janitorial work is very important, but are there really people with a passion for feces?  If everybody applied your philosophy how would the “dirty jobs” get done? Thanks,  Dail  Great question!  Reason would tell us that no one would … Read More
