Do What You Love

Do what you love and you'll love what you do... that's what they say anyway.

In thinking about and pursuing Godly insight from others about what's next for me, I came across these ideas more than once:

What percentage of your time at work do you spend doing what you love?
What percentage of your time do you spend doing what you have to do?

Do your best to put a number one it.  What would you say?

I had one friend say that you should have a 75% Love to Do vs. 25% Have to Do ratio.  Another said as long as you're at 50% and 50% you'll probably be okay and feel satisfied in your job.

I don't think the point is an exact percentage that we need to land on, because it's probably different for everyone.  But still:

Are you doing anything you love at work?  Can you do more?
How can you start seeing your "Have to Dos" as essential to your work and therefore enjoyable?
What is your ideal ratio?  What does that explain about how satisfied you are at your job?
