The Making of Jon Stewart
Anita Sharpe on Passionate Work

Here's another example of the rewards that can come from listening to your gut and being authentic. The Daily Show's Jon Stewart tells Oprah in the June issue of her magazine that creating a funny show about politics 'was a conscious decision to move to relevance -- to make the show something people care about. I had done a talk show where it was, 'Ladies and gentlemen, tonight we're doing three segments instead of two with Maria Conchita Alonso. Because it turns out the guy with the falcons is not going to come tonight.' I thought, This can't be how I live my life. I decided not to give a crap about what anybody else thought anymore. I did what I wanted to do, with like-minded people who'd bring passion, competence, and creativity to it.'
