In my favorite essay, Poehler advises to “treat your career like a bad boyfriend.” Careers can’t love us back, so why should we put the effort forth to love them? Your career, then, is like a bad boyfriend or girlfriend, who wants you more when you pretend not to care. The more you focus on your passions, the more your career becomes interested in you.
