Getting ahead v. doing something that you love

“Think about what you want to do and what you love. You’ll never be successful if you spend too much time thinking about how you’re going to get ahead. Get ahead by doing something that you love and committing yourself to that. Then you’ll be happy, you’ll work hard, and you’ll get noticed.”

–Jenna Lyons, president and executive creative director of J.Crew
