Motivational Monday

Monday, September 13th

So I was recently asked, “can you live just with passion?” My first answer is you need to eat and breath. But, passion can be a motivator.

Passion is not the motor that gets things done. You can be passionate about what you do but you still need to do it.

So passion alone does not provide the skill or the talent to complete a task. But, passion can propel a skill to complete a project with mastery.

Passion is a generator while how you do something is the motor running.

Here’s what I think when I wake up on days I know I need to get something done:

1. I make a list of what I’m gonna do for the day.

2. If I’m feeling a lack of passion, as if the generator needs a little push, I have a marocchino which is a shot of espresso, a dab of cocoa powder and steamed milk to the rim of a four ounce cup. It truly gets the motor running. There’s no stopping me then.

3. I check off all the things I got done at the end of the day.

When you’re passionate about what you do, you can certainly do it better. Passion is the love in the relationship between you and what you do best.

With sincere interest in building your best,
