“ Don't get a Job. Get a Mission. ”

- Reza Aslan -

That’s the great answer that scholar and writer Reza Aslan gave to the question, “You seem to wear a lot of hats. Author, scholar, editor, sometimes pundit?, father, husband, etc. My question is, what does your average day look like?”

He said:

“I don’t think of myself as having a job. I think of it as having a mission. My mission is to break down walls between communities using arts and literature. I have a bunch of different jobs that allow me to fulfill my mission.
So that’s my advice: Don’t get a job. Get a mission.”

Some of us might disagree with some other things this man says – but you can’t argue with this one :-)
