Where are you speeding through where you should take more time? That’s my daily question. However, he brings up an interesting parallel, where are you too slow, heavy, and controlling?
It’s ok to make a swift impact, spur the thought of change, and then see how the ripple effect plays out. I see this daily as a leader – inspire your followers don’t boss them.
This could easily be a 2000 word manifesto on what drives us and how we identify our “passion.” In all aspects of life, it seems to be one of those buzz words… “Just follow your passion,” but really how do we know. What is MY passion?
I am a firm believer that our passions vary based on our many roles. I guarantee your professional passion is a bit different from what you consider it as a parent, partner, and friend.
So how do we know… what is it that motivates us, fills us up?
I don’t have the golden ticket, but Simon Sinek of “Start With Why” is damn close.
Early this week he posted a blog just one sentence long: “Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion.”
In the words of my hilarious friend; #boom
Ask yourself, are you stressed or in love?
