Bud Caddell shows us how to be happy in business with a clever Venn diagram. Very insightful and concise!

Which is harder? Saying no to work that pays well, getting better at something you’re not, or learning to monetize? It was definitely tough for me to say no to something you do well and get paid good money for. I had to save up enough money first to be comfortable with getting better at something else I like better. Via Daring Fireball.

    This is not really an article, just a picture. Can you add 3-4 more paragraphs on how to use this and how it applies to us.

  2. Richard says:

    Though I knew (I am we all know) abt all those things thats been talked about in the Venn diagram, I never put them together and saw them as shown. Very thought provoking. Easier said than done. Good to know though. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Froderick, try clicking the LINK to the article, duh.

  4. I truly hate the word ‘monetize’. That is all.

  5. I hate it when people say, “That is all,” as though anyone cared.

  6. geez, what’s with all the irritation flowing in the comments today? yikes.

  7. John Smith says:

    Or another spin on passion/practacality balance of work is; what can I produce for myself that I don’t have to purchase? The philosophy being the less you consume the less you have to spend. Meaning more time to work towards what really moves you!

  8. A lovely sentiment, but in times like these, people will setting for a J.O.B.! Sometimes fulfillment and self actualization need to take a back seat to just paying the bills.

  9. great illustration, thanks for providing it!

    I like the graphic. Great for us visual learners.

  11. I do believe that if you do what you love and share your passion with all of the people around you, your life will produce the money for you to live. Also learn to self direct your investments so others don’t make money off of you!
