The Obstacle Is The Way: Take Pride

This quote may help you get back on track if you’re having second thoughts about your job or career.

But you, you’re so busy thinking about the future, you don’t take any pride in the tasks you’re given right now. You just phone it all in, cash your paycheck, and dream of some higher station in life. Or you think, This is just a job, it isn’t who I am, it doesn’t matter.


Everything we do matters- whether it’s making smoothies while you save up money or studying for the bar- even after you already achieved the success you sought. Everything is a chance to do and be your best. Only self-absorbed assholes think they are too good for whatever their current station requires.” -Ryan Holiday (pg.94)
