Stop Saying “Do What You Love, Love What You Do.” It Devalues Actual Work.


“One consequence of this isolation is the division that DWYL creates among workers, largely along class lines. Work becomes divided into two opposing classes: that which is lovable (creative, intellectual, socially prestigious) and that which is not (repetitive, unintellectual, undistinguished). Those in the lovable-work camp are vastly more privileged in terms of wealth, social status, education, society’s racial biases, and political clout, while comprising a small minority of the workforce.”

Being paid for good loving  feel like, well prostitution- Yes I love my love "work"! I also enjoy what I labor at, which is why I value and expect  the best compensation!  Too many  creatives feel guilty expecting  compensation…  It’s a simple midset change that makes a huge difference!
