You have committed your self to seeking out information, knowledge and experience.
DO not think you can put yourself in a box (of comfort & safety) and gain the most out of life!
That is right, get out and learn everything you can about your area of interest, as you focus on your area of interest and BECOME THE EXPERT it will not feel like work, it will feel like.....BLISS.
If you are studying, searching, working and seeking deep into the area of your greatest interest, you will find that the 'work' of the work is no longer work. (was that redundant?)
So Get that book. Read that article, search that blog, find all you have access to about the area that brings you the most happiness, interest, passion and enjoyment.
I meant NOW!
