Well just imagine if you could say your on holiday every day of the year.

If you find what you are truly passionate about, then finding your career will not be too far away. It’s a lesson I have learned from my years creating businesses. I’ve never had what I would call a job, but I’ve worked every day for just over 25 years.

What I've also learnt is that there is so much reward in giving your passion to others for them to enjoy and discover, 

It’s all about finding a balance between work and play – it’s all living. This is something Wade Davis, the renowned professor and anthropologist, knows well. So does the guy who has inspired my way of working since my 1st job on Oxford Street, London in 1986, I was just 16.

Among some fascinating advice to young people that Wade offers, he has some views on the nature of work. “A career is not something that you put on like a coat. It is something that grows organically around you, step-by-step, choice-by-choice, and experience-by-experience. Everything adds up. No work is beneath you. Nothing is a waste of time unless you make it so. An elderly cab driver in New York may well have as much to teach you as a wandering saint in India, a madman in the Sahara, certainly a university professor.”

As Wade said: "If you place yourself in the way of opportunities, in situations where there is no choice but to move forward, no option but success, you create a momentum that in the end propels you to new levels of experience and engagement that would have seemed beyond reach only months before.

“And you’ll find that the work you do is just a lens through which to view and experience the world, and only for a time. The goal is to make living itself, the act of being alive, one’s vocation, knowing full well that nothing ultimately can be planned or anticipated, no blueprint found to predict the outcome of something as complex as a human life.”

Whether you are a new graduate, a new pensioner, or anywhere in between, or before or after, then you have the opportunity to think about what you want you do with your life. If you can find your passion, it means you will never have a job. Now, I’m heading back to work.
