Business is my passion; but in between business I pursue what gives me joy. You will be amazed at how much the gift of joy and the art of making a living are intertwined.
The Panthera Tigris can be viewed at the Fort Worth Zoo in an enormous natural habitat. They have snowy white fur. Their sapphire eyes are the result of a recessive gene that alters the color.
I was lucky enough to meet the Tigris up front and personal. The breath of the Tiger steamed up the glass. Before he sat down, I watched a child misbehaving, trying to get the Tigris attention.
Respectfully, I watched the Tigris' beating heart; frantically, nervously, he paced back and forth until the child went away.
Having one-on-one time with the Panthera Tigris was enlightening. The hours I spend receiving joy and wisdom cannot be measured by the clock.
Work is something I must do; seeking joy gives me fulfillment. Life's work is not an obsession; it's a balance that includes harmony. Work without joy is empty; incomplete.
