Motivational Monday...Focus On What You Enjoy

 

At some point in the last day or so I passed a milestone. Jeff Dowler, CRS  posted something in the Q&A about a week ago about my approaching this milestone.

 

So many people were kind enough to go to my posts to help me cross over.  activerain milestoneWait a minute… cross over? 

 

I’m not ready to cross over yet! You know what I mean, reach 4,000,000 points.

 

The thing is while I appreciate the thing about points and milestones, it’s not what keeps me here. 

 

And, since I’m for all intents and purposes retired now (except for referral consultations), I’m not exactly here for business. 

 

I’m here because blogging keeps my mind active. It has been a desire of mine to write and blogging here has helped me organize my thoughts. 

 

Of more importance for me are the number of friendships I’ve made here and what I continue to learn. 

 

So if I had to impart any milestone-words-of-wisdom it would be to focus on enjoying what it is you do. 

If you no longer enjoy it, move on and find something you do enjoy. 

If you have to do what it is you do but no longer enjoy it, do two things:

1. Find a way that makes it enjoyable for you

2.Set a goal that will allow you to find something you do enjoy.

 

 

 

I always had the theory that the most important thing is be happy, enjoy what are you doing, and be fresh mentally. Rafael Nadal

Kathy,

Congratulations on making it to 4 million.  And we both enjoy watching Rafa Nadal play, and like you he deserves a congrats for winning the Australian Open a few days ago.  Happy Monday!  A

4,000,000! Not many in that A/R points club, Kathy, and not many give as much to the group here as you do.

I do believe we should do what we enjoy. One thing that is interesting to me is that sometimes we do something important that we don't enjoy, do it consistently enough, and all of a sudden realize that our perception has changed and it has now become enjoyable!

Hi Kathy:

Life is too short to not spend time doing the things we enjoy, and your enjoyment of blogging shows through so clearly in your posts. And we are all the lucky recipients of your sharing!

Congratulations again on the 4,000,000 point milestone!

Hi Wayne Martin would never want to retire from friendships. 

Sham Reddy CRS thank you. Life is too short not to enjoy what you're doing. 

Michael Jacobs I agree. There will always be things that we have to do but may not enjoy but we don't have to stay in that situation.

Brian England like he always said, it's not like we can take the points to a store and buy something with them. 

Exactly Candice A. Donofrio Like I tell everyone, it took me months of being here before I realized that points were involved.
