Do what you love
Dean Kamen
Segway inventor

My father was an artist who loved what he did. He'd sit at his board 12 hours a day. I once said to him, "Gee, Dad, all the other fathers have time after they come home to play ball or sit around. At the end of the day, you're working."

He put his brush down and said, "Those fathers are doctors, lawyers and bankers. When they come home, all they want to do is their hobby. My work and my hobby are the same. Find work in something you love and it won't feel like work." I listened to him. And I have been fortunate enough to work at something that I love.
