Its been a very hectic couple of weeks for me with tons of projects at work as well as outside of work. Lots of things that just need to get done. Gardens to be planted, trying to get my record mastered, and of course get some blogging done. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. I keep wondering when I’ll get some time to relax – and then I realize that building things and working on side projects is how I relax.
Because for me, I always have to be working on something. Always. As I think about the people that most energize me, a common thread also emerges. They are also always ‘working on’ something. They always are thinking of a new business, a new idea, or a new way of doing something. They are always learning – always thirsty for what comes next. Put a bunch of these people in a room, and watch what happens. Granted, they may not all team up and work on a project together, but the energy is contagious.
That’s really the point of this whole post. I hope that you all can surround yourselves with people that inspire and motivate you, and that push you to work hard on something. If you don’t know who they are, go find them. Tomorrow, instead of asking ‘what’s going on?’ or ‘how was your weekend?’ – just ask ‘what are you working on?’ You may be surprised at what you hear. We all should have a response to that question.
So, that being said I’ll get it started – what are YOU working on? Leave a comment and let me know!
Update: Just wanted to share this post by Ian Mackenzie. I’ve been enjoying his blog for a while – but right now, he’s got some pretty cool things that he’s working on in the world of travel. Click to jump to Ians’s post..
