Management of time and space can be very difficult. Many times I find myself still sitting at my desk still working or writing well before or after the so-called normal business workday. So what’s wrong with this picture … or maybe the question is what’s right with this picture?
When you think of all the greats in the world and the accomplishments they have made. Do you hear that they shut off their minds at 5:00 and stopped working on their passion? No you don’t. Do you hear that while Michelangelo was painting the Sistine Chapel he said – Well, it looks like it’s time to take lunch or go home and stop painting – no you don’t.
Do you think Hemmingway or Albert Einstein packed up their bags and said – ok it’s 5:00 let’s go home? No. If you have a passion for what you are doing… If you truly believe in your heart of hearts that you need to get your message out to the masses no matter what time of the day – then you are in the zone – then you are living your passion.
Here are three questions to ask yourself:
- Is what I am doing fulfilling my dreams?
- Is getting this task accomplished important to my passion?
- Will taking these steps help someone?
Answering other than yes to these questions tells you that you need to find the passion in what you do. But until then – you are simply living a mundane life from day-to-day. Stop and look at every day of your life. Are you fulfilling your dream or simply following a path because it’s easy? It may be easy now, but as the years pass and you find yourself with your nose pushed against the window and looking for a way back into a life of greatness you may start to feel – it’s too late.
Let me tell you this — it is never, never too late. Your path may look a little different, but taking action off the beaten path you have made can reignite your dreams. Do it and do it now.
