That which each can do best, none but his Maker can teach him. Where is the master who could have taught Shakespeare? Where is the master who could have instructed Franklin, or Washington, or Bacon, or Newton? . . . Shakespeare will never be made by the study of Shakespeare. Do that which is assigned you, and you cannot hope too much or dare too much. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Identify one of your biggest challenges at the moment (ie I don’t feel passionate about my work) and turn it into a question (ie How can I do work I’m passionate about?) Write it on a post-it and put it up on your bathroom mirror or the back of your front door. After 48-hours, journal what answers came up for you and be sure to evaluate them.
The ie, “I don’t feel passionate about my work,” that is my post-it note. It has been following me for the last several months (maybe a little longer). I wrote about this in the response to the challenge from June 2. So, how can I do work I am passionate about? I know that I am great at and enjoy organization, scheduling and helping to move a team forward. Those skills, coupled with my law degree, put me in a great position to assist in a law office as a paralegal (or another challenging position) while I pursue my passion for photography on the weekends.
