Live to work? Work to live? As the poetic lead singer from U2 Bono sings; "I still haven't found what I'm looking for." Is that a question you need to ask yourself? A lot of people with ADD need to. I've written about working in the wrong job and the toxic work environment in the past. I'm lucky, I've left that behind and have a darn good gig going on right now in my professional career.

Many people don't and that poses the question.....are you doing what you are passionate about? Almost any ADD'er will come alive when they are working away at something they love and have passion for. They perk up, focus, concentrate and are able to maintain the focus for long periods of time...sometimes a little too long

This is a real straight forward post that anyone with ADD or without can take something from. If you are going to do something every day for a career, why not make it something you have passion for. It can sometimes be a hard thing to find, but when you do, you'll wonder how you ever managed before that.
