Something I read on Seth Godin's blog this week got me thinking.
If you don't have time to clean up, you don't have time to cook.
The good part of your thing isn't the whole thing.
Even the stuff you love takes work. It takes preparation. Cleaning up afterwards.
And probably, most of the time, you don't love the crap parts of your thing.
The good parts don't magically make the work not work. You can be passionate about cooking and not like cleaning up sometimes.
Both can be true at the same time.
Stop worrying about figuring out what you're passionate about. Figure out what work you're prepared to do and do it.
Embrace the work and you'll enjoy the good part of you thing more.
