Why Passion Is NOT The Way

It’s time we all take a good hard look at PASSION and why it’s ridiculous. 

 

Raise your hand if you’ve been asked this: 

     What are you passionate about? 

     Have you found your passion? 

     Wanna pay me money to help you uncover your passion? 

     

Hold up - let’s stop this madness for a minute.

Email Is Not Your Master

A few years ago I was asked to speak on a panel of female entrepreneurs to discuss our journey into the world of business ownership. At the same time, I had committed to what I called “The Year of No.” 

As you guessed, the Year of No was about saying no to all of the ridiculous things that I had being saying yes to. Things that were sucking my time and attention or generally just made me grumpy: coffee dates, pick your brain dates, actual dates, no fun friends, networking events, listening to voicemails, and yes, EMAIL.

To Do or To Find Out?

Do you find that your to do list just turns into a bunch of questions? 
 
When I would start getting overwhelmed with work, in a fury I would do a huge brain dump on a legal pad. All of the things that I just had to get done in an effort to get it out of my head and organized. What ended up happening more often than not was that my to-do list would have more questions on it than to-dos. 
 
To-dos are actions, not questions.

Pokemon Go Is Your Competitor

Pokemon Go Is Your Competitor

Right now, I’m in Bentonville, AR visiting my mom and taking in the GORGEOUS scenery. Wow, it’s pretty here. Walking along one of the amazing trails over the weekend, I saw some deer, a beautiful stream and a lot of people with their heads in their phones playing Pokemon Go.

In the beginning, it’s easy for entrepreneurs to quickly reach overload. Between filing the necessary legal paperwork to attracting your first clients, the last thing you want to worry about is what tweet you should send out that week.

Breaks Are Good For the Soul

 

There is something wildly romantic in escaping into a daydream’s whimsy, and dipping down below the horizon into a new world before you. Pause before you run off into the sunset and take some time to realize why you are going on break, and give yourself a goal. Mindful vacations will make your return to work even better.
