A speaking colleague of mine, Lisa McInnes-Smith, shared this great quote with the audience I was in recently:
Do I love what I do, or am I just doing what I do?
Just as this quote is in two parts, so do people live their lives. It is a great question to ask yourself. The first part is about pursuing your passion and the second is about going through the motions. It can be difficult to do what you love to do all of the time, but at some stage during your week or month you have to give yourself permission to pursue your passion.
A day, a week, a month and a year can pass by quickly. You have to have something to look forward to on a regular basis or your life and the mountain of jobs to do can become a relentless never ending list of must do's that make up every day of the week.
So here is a challenge if you are up to it:
Once a week for the next month, do something that you love to do.
Schedule it into your diary and if you have to reschedule it, you must find another spot for it in that week. The challenge is once a week for 4 consecutive weeks, tell me what it is you are going to do.
I can promise you will feel different and have more energy for everything else and everyone else in your life!
Healthy Eats says..
Everyday in our lives we do two things, those that we are good at, and those that are just not our cup of tea. Or should it be, those that we love doing and those that we just kinda don't. According to a study of some researchers in the University or Warwick, we are more productive when we are happy. That should make us think right now that we do more, because we just love it, we are happy about it. What are those that you love doing? Or have you already figured this out yet? Talk to us.
