Passion and Devotion

Have you ever worked so hard yet you don't feel mentally exhausted (or in some cases burned out)? Well, chances are, that's what you are supposed to do in your life. This morning, I saw a very profound quote by Bob Proctor. "You have got to love what you do because you are trading your life for it". We spend most of our time working. And if we hate what we do, guess what, we are trading our life (time) for it.

Lately, I've been doing a lot of work on a personal project of mine. I'm on a 1 week leave from my workplace but I find myself immersed in this project every single waking moment. I just can't put it down! Sure, at the end of the day, I was physically exhausted. I now know what it feels like to fall asleep the moment my head hits the pillow! Yet, the following morning, I jump out of bed at 5.00am to continue at it. This feeling is fantastic!

I read somewhere (sorry, I can't remember from where) that when you are on a medical leave (for a mild sickness) and have to confine yourself at home, what you do even though you were sick is what you really love to do with your life. Does this make any sense to you?

Live with passion!
