The passion trap

 Today I looked at interesting video on designing your life.

One of the interesting idea about the misconceptions when designing your life is that we need to be passionate.

I love what I do, but it is very hard to be passionate all the time. One amazing quote I listen to was "Wanting what you get, instead of getting what you want".

Many people are afraid to make the next step just because they could be disappointed.

Today's society is extremely passive. We are waiting for good things to happen and we are fearful when they don't.

But this is the passion trap.

We need to learn to let go of the high expectations and follow our vision. However, we must also check regularly if we are on the right track or not.

The rest is to work hard and have habits to support what you want to do. Passion is just optional.

The messy meeting

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

The recovery day

 What to do once all the presents are opened? Should we just move forward with our goals? As I wrote about recovery day after flying long distance. It is important to plan a recovery day after the holidays. This is your guilty free time.

New year preparations

 I stopped preparing for things since August this year. I decided to go with the flow. With no plans for the New Year, today I received an invitation to a party. Seems like not having any plan was the best plan in the end.
