Steve, 30, from Limerick. Artist, Creative Director at All Out Design, Pizza lover, Old toy collector, Fun hunter. 'Live for fun' is the mantra I live my life by. The full version is 'live for fun as long as it's not at anyone else's expense', but that's not as catchy.
I think it's impossible to know what will happen in the future so I generally spend my time and effort on making the now as fun as possible, and so far the future has always fallen into place. This means working on things that makes me happy every day, spending quality time with the ones I love, doing what I feel is right, and being open to new and exciting experiences.
I've been fortunate enough to find something I'm entirely passionate about, so I fully pursued it and forged a career from it. As a bonus, I found ways to include my friends so we can all share the experience together. Doing what I love surrounded by friends brings me endless happiness. I'm grateful every day for being in this position because it could all end tomorrow. But, as each week, month and year passes, it feels more secure. Looking back on what we've all accomplished together makes me feel confident and excited for what the future holds.
My advice to anyone reading this who's unhappy in their job. Start looking for something new while you're still there, practice what you enjoy outside of work until it becomes your job, put effort into finding something you love, especially if you think there's nothing that excites you. Don't waste a big portion of your life on something that makes you frustrated, stressed and sad. When you discover something you enjoy, build on it and make a conscious effort to find more happy parts until eventually you're doing something that truly makes you happy. All other aspects of your life will become so much happier too. Live for fun."
