Last week I left for my final "vacation" away from home for the summer. I was very excited to see my family, and have been having a wonderful visit.
Naively though, I assumed I would be able to spend time on the Internet, on my design journals, and on my "Artful Success" program to-do list. Little did I know, it would not be as easy as I thought. Not only was the Internet availability intermittent, at the speed of dial-up connection, but my cell service and phone Internet was not much better. Is it just me, or does that make you want to beat your head into the wall also?
This little jaunt away from technology made me realize just how much we depend on modern technology for so many things - every day! This caused a problem not only with keeping up with tasks and with downloading and reading my "Artful Success" weekly update information, but also keeping up with my intended goals for the week. Had I realized this might happen, I would have planned an alternate set of goals ... and brought a few books to read.
Just goes to show, when you are passionate about what you do, it ceases to feel like a job or a chore - and turns into another form of passion.
What job or task are you doing that you are passionate about? Does it feel like work, does it fill you up?
