Is Your Job Your Passion?
I was browsing through some blogs and got stopped in my tracks by this quote from Alister Cameron
If what you do with the best hours of your day is not also the thing you’re passionate about, stop right now!
Stop right now and confront the cold hard facts for what they are: no amount of effectiveness training, time management skills, productivity tips and tricks or goal setting know-how will replace the critical missing ingredient of your life: passion.
Until you discover your “fire within” you will remain condemned to a life only endured, not lived; to delicacies only tasted, not devoured; to joys only imagined, not experienced. And in old age you will lament the days of your youth, when fears about money and security kept you from taking the leaps of faith and courage in the direction of your dreams.
A life lived in moderation is not the stuff of stories told to grandchildren with a twinkle in your eye.
I got my new wind a couple of weeks ago when I launched my new site SacWomen. Women's issues have been a grand passion of mine for all of my adult life and it is such a joy to have a 'job' that allows me to experience my passion all day long. And with three daughters and two grandaughters, there is no time for moderation to make this world a better place for them!
