For many of us, that can change from day to day.
The difference may have to do with how well you know and connect with what motivates you and pulls you forward. Naturally. Without pushing and prodding and forcing yourself to do the things that you know you “should be doing,” but that you just, well, aren’t.
The difference may have nothing to do with what you’re working on or where you’re headed. It may be how you’re thinking about it. And understanding why it matters to you.
What is it that you are truly passionate about having or being in your life?
And I’m not talking about the six-figure salary or the new car or that promotion you’re setting yourself up for.
Maybe it’s a feeling of deep personal freedom. Maybe it’s proving that you are making your own way in the world. Maybe it’s mastery or recognition in your area of expertise. Maybe it’s raising your family in the way that you always imagined doing.
