Do you love marketing?

Everywhere you go, you here people bitching about their work. It seems like no one likes their job. So, do you like marketing?

Many people believe that marketing is a passionate industry. The more passionate you are about it, the better you are at it. Asking if you love marketing could possibly be another way of to gauge your competency. Be careful of your answer. But career aside, seriously, do you love marketing? Laura has a very nice post up that asks “Do you love your work?“. If you think about the fact that you spend more of your waking hours doing work than watching TV or spending quality time with your family, you begin to realize how miserable you can really be if you don’t like what you are doing.

As the year nears its end, think about this. As you map your life for yet another year, before you make that all-important and oft-forsaken New Year’s Resolution, answer this: do you love what you are doing now?

  1. Excellent point, Calvin! I really like this phrase: “If you think about the fact that you spend more of your waking hours doing work than watching TV or spending quality time with your family, you begin to realize how miserable you can really be…”

    This is so true. Assuming a 40 hour work week (and a lot of people work more hours than that), work is large percentage of how we spend our time.

    Thanks for the link.
