This is an audio version of the blog post, "4 Reasons You Should Love What You Do" Written and read by Jeff Gargas (@JeffGargas). Read the post at www.teachbetter.com/blog/4-reasons-you-should-love-what-you-do In This Post: Loving what you do is important for many reasons. Four reasons why you should really love teaching and why what you do is important. Ok, let's be honest; sometimes work can suck. Yep, I said it. Me, Mr "I love Mondays because I love what I do." Because it's true. Even when you love what you do, you still get stressed, still get tired, and still have bad days.  The thing is, if you really do LOVE what you do, those bad days, those stressful days, they're just a little less painful. When you love what you do, there are fewer of those days. And when they come, you can climb back much faster, and much more easily. Because, when you truly love what you do, that love drives everything you do, including dealing with the stress and frustrations that will occur no matter what.  I love what I do. Like, I really love it. I love it so much, I actually don't love weekends. I mean, I love spending time with my wife and kids and seeing friends and family. But I'm always aching to get back to work. I get pumped up on Sundays because I love Mondays. I want this for you. I hope you already love what you do. But if not, here are 4 reasons I think you should. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/teach-better-talk/message
