Ever since I can remember, I was busy setting goals and achieving them. I even kept a paper planner back in high school so I could keep track of my progress towards achieving what I wanted to do. I quickly realized that much of what I did was “busywork” and only some of what I did brought me fulfillment.
I discovered that if I shifted my focus to the things that brought fulfillment and fired me up instead of just the things that kept me busy, I achieved success faster and I was much happier. Then I really started thinking about how I could feel fulfilled and happy each day.
I began mapping out Passion Projects early on. Some were small while others were larger. Some have beginnings and ends while others will continue on endlessly. As a result, in my adult life, this behavior has served me well to keep doing things that fire me up.
I get out of bed each day excited and invigorated to make awesome things happen and you can too!
