Still Haven't Found What Your Looking For? Try Envy.

by Jesse Giglio in

Unclear about what you want to be when you grow up...and you're grown up?  Maybe the answer is just an envy away...or sort of.  Personally I try to avoid envy and jealousy but there is an incredibly honest point here about seeing what you hope to become in the reflection of someone else and thus being provided a mark to pursue. 

In this grab from Lifehacker writer Adam Dachis we're told to pay attention to what we envy to discover the work we'll love. 

"Jealousy and envy are not necessarily the most attractive traits of humanity, but at least they're honest.  If you're having trouble figuring out what kind of work you love, try paying closer attention to the things you envy.

When you pay attention to what you envy, it gives you a pretty clear end goal to focus on. While that may be a lofty goal, we can't start figuring out the little steps to get there until we have that end point. If you're having trouble discovering what kind of work you'd really truly enjoy, let yourself be jealous and envy others. You might figure out what you're looking for."

Thoughts?  Is this just wrong or uncomfortably honest?
