If You Can't Work At What You Love, Love The Work You Do

 On this edition of Up to Date we look at two approaches to being happy with what you do: finding a way to make your passion your work, or making better decisions in the job you have.


  • Nathan Gebhard is one of the creators of documentary series, Roadtrip Nation.  He is also one of the authors of Roadmap: The Get-It-Together Guide for Figuring Out What To Do with Your Life.
  • Steve McClatchy is founder of Alleer Training and Consulting and the author of Decide: Work Smarter, Reduce Your Stress, and Lead by Example.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
As senior producer of Up To Date, I want our listeners to hear familiar and new voices that shine light on the issues and challenges facing the myriad communities KCUR serves, and to expose our audiences to the wonderful and the creative in the Kansas City area. Just as important to me is an obligation to mentor the next generation of producers to ensure that the important conversations continue. Reach me at alexanderdk@kcur.org.
