What’s your passion?

Standard

What’s your passion? What are the things you do that you enjoy?

Everyone will have those things that they enjoy doing. Whether people consider them just a hobby or they consider it much more. When it comes to something that is much more than a hobby, it can be said that it’s your passion. Your passion may be a part of you and it may just define who you are. So what is passion?

  • Is something that you love to do. You have the feeling that you just have to do it, you have the urge, you have the desire, you have the patience, and you live with it. Without it, you feel empty and purposeless.

 

  • You invest your time! You may have or have not realized that you spend great deal of time with it. And when you the things that you are passionate about, times just fly. You just never felt the strain of waiting. It’s just time well spent you might say.

 

  • You set goals. You see yourself want to be better at what you are doing. It’s a milestone that you want to achieve. You want to grow and develop better. You just want to improve or fly like a soaring eagle if you will.

 

  • It can be your career for life. Well it’s hard to say that people eventually get to do the things that they love to. For example, if you love numbers and it is something you are passionate about, becoming a mathematician may just be the best thing to do. But we all have different passion and some can just be hard to turn it into your career. We have our choices. Those who had their passion as careers, great for them. But it is not a simple equation nor there any algorithm to make it work out.

 

  • If it is not your career, what can it be? It still can be the things that you enjoy and love doing in your daily life. You can have something to look forward to doing. You can have your passion as your stress-reliever from your work life.

So what are they exactly these passion? It can be anything – baking, singing, caring for animals, or even reading. Aren’t these things your hobby?? To some it may just be. To me passion and hobby may just have a difference. With passion, you have the desire to turn them into something more. Take baking for example. You may be a teacher by day which of course can be something that you actually love to do or consider it as your passion as well or it may be not. But out of work life, you may just have a small baking company from your home or something. It is something you love to do, you invested so much time in it, you set future plans for it and it can be so much more.

New Year, New Resolution?

Standard

The year 2017, it has been more than a week. Hope it’s not too late for a new post for the new year. So new year, new resolution? 

…..my new year resolution is to accomplish my last, last, last, last years’ resolution…

I’m sure every individuals would have their ‘new resolution’ for the ‘new year’. It might be a follow up to last year’s resolution that were unfinished, it might be the resolution that were never been started or even it might be a totally new resolution for the new year! Whatever resolution it is or it was, why do we have to have them by the time another year comes by?

New year…? Its just another day!

First of all, what is new year? Well technically I would say its just the same ‘day’ like any other day. What makes it different or special is that, it marked the line where we another year has gone by. Same like any other day, the different lies on the date. Its a system that human beings have developed in the past to make sense of the time. Nevertheless, its just like any other day.

1/1/2017-I will start to exercise today!

31/12/2018-That’s okay, I will start to exercise tomorrow!

Yes, it is big that we leap into a new year. But to have a new year resolution? I’m afraid it does not last long. The new year’s sensation would only have lasted a short while. Its like any other celebratory days or holidays, they lasted only a short while. To have new year resolution, not to say its bad, but I’d say the the essence would last a short while too. Soon after few days goes by, new year’s essence diminishes, so as our new resolution. I might be wrong but we might even have forgotten about it weeks or months.

New resolution everyday!

What I was trying to say is, we can change that. Some might be frustrated as to have the same new resolution at every year. So the good news is, we can change that!

Firstly, instead of new year, new resolution, lets bend the rule and have a say to new day, new resolution or goals as some might say. What we are doing here is that we are trying to change the way our mind behave. By having the say new day, new goal, its like a journey to a never ending mission to accomplished your goal. Make no mistake, it does not mean you have to have literally new goal every single day. The ‘goal’ does not have to be finished on that day! It may require different length of time to accomplish that goal. To have these goals everyday in your mind, simply provides you with a reminder every single day.

Secondly, like I said your goal may require certain amount of time and effort in order to achieve your goal. It might help to give your goal a set of deadline. But before that, it’s important to know, not everything will need a deadline. Other than deadline, your goal might be achieve by levels or mark as I would say.

For example, an assignment is something that you can give a deadline to. But losing weight its not something you can give deadline to. You can say you have to finish your assignment within a week. When it comes to something like losing weight, you can’t simply put you have to lose 10 kg in one month. It may not seem realistic. Instead try put it this way, “I want to lose 10 kg” or put it by levels “I want to have a running record of 6 minutes per km, then after that level was achieve, I will try to have a running record of 5 minutes per km. Do not put the ‘time’ to it. It does not work that way. This is something that will not follow the system of time.

Other than that, to put them in a record or tracking system might be even good! It gives you the sense of accomplishment. So as to put them all together, new day, new goals!
