I would rather die of passion than of boredom.”
~Vincent van Gogh
I rolled my eyes when a new set of emails popped up in my inbox. Will the messages ever stop? I remember the early days of the Internet, when it was actually a thrill to receive a new message.What used to be exciting had become not only boring, but downright annoying.That’s when I realized that what I considered my “treasures” had become burdens over time.And while it wasn’t a big deal to see my old favorite pair of jeans in the donation pile, I became terrified when one day I woke up and, instead of feeling energized by what I do, I felt dread.There were more than thirty items on my to-do list.My passion had turned into an endless stream of tasks. My inspiration was at peril, and I couldn’t let that happen.Here are the five steps I followed to rekindle the passion for what I do. This process worked for me, and it might work for you, too.
