Your Career And Your Passion Don’t Always Match Up

“It is a harsh reality that some of the most important and respectable jobs which deserve high salaries might be better off with low salaries. A politician, or a minister, or a teacher is sure to be working sincerely and selflessly for the good of the people when through and through there is little monetary reward guaranteed. This is how the charlatans are weeded out of the field.”
― Criss Jami, Healology

“As a war correspondent and a mother, I’ve learned to live in two different realities.

I choose to live in peace and witness war- to experience the worst in people but to remember the beauty.”
― Lynsey Addario

“Love is a career with its own stages, rewards, and failures . . . a vocation as concrete as a calling in the Church, worth giving a lifetime to.”

“When an organization starts hemorrhaging talent, CEOs and boards of directors want to know why. If the boss gets blamed for the brain drain and is ultimately removed, it means relief for the employees still there and ex post facto vengeance for the former ones.”
― Jeffrey Kluger, The Narcissist Next Door: Understanding the Monster in Your Family, in Your Office, in Your Bed–in Your World

“It takes two to make a very great career: the man who is great, and the man–almost rarer–who is great enough to see greatness and say so.”
― Ayn Rand

“Understanding who you are is critical for your career advancement. Self-awareness helps you get ahead.”
― Bonnie Marcus, The Politics of Promotion: How High-Achieving Women Get Ahead and Stay Ahead

“Your career and your passion don’t always match up.”
― Amy Poehler, Yes Please

“Treat your career like a bad boyfriend. Your career wont take care of you. It won’t call you back or introduce you to its parents. Your career will openly flirt with other people while you are around.”
― Amy Poehler
