But we at DSP are going to lay down simple truth that won’t make us too popular with a lot of people, but what the hell…it’s Monday…it’ll get your blood pumping!!! Here it is:
YOU are NOT what you do.
One more time in a more “academic” way:
Your self-worth should not be equated with the tasks you perform that earn you an income.
So, you think I’m BS’ing you? You shouldn’t. Because here’s the thing. Doing what you love, while great, doesn’t mean you suddenly become a better person. You might be a douchebag for all we know. You may be an awesome person who does a crappy job…or maybe you are TOTALLY AWESOME because you do a crappy job.
So, doing what you love doesn’t really have anything to do with who you are as a person–douchebag or non-douchebag alike.
And I’ve got 3 reasons why this is true.
LeBron James is arguable the best basketball player on the planet. But he’s been known to have a douchebag moment (we at DSP offically castigated LeBron..but we forgive him now because he is rarely a douchebag), And to all you Kobe fans, he’s an even bigger douche. I don’t give a crap if everyone just forgot about his little problem in Colorado.
Haven’t you ever worked with a real douchebag who never gets fired because he’s WAY better at his job than you are. Yeah…he certainly thinks that being great at what he doe entitle him to be a douchebag…but we at DSP think differently. He;s still a douchebag.
