Find Your Passion

How do you know you’re passionate about what you’re doing? When you can’t do it for 3 days and that makes you feel sad.

This is a really quick post. It’s early in the morning and I’m about to be off to WordCamp Atlanta. It’s a 3 day event in Atlanta for the WordPress community. WordPress is the platform that I use to run this blog site. It also runs about 25% of the web sites on the planet. It’s an open source platform that is built on community and sharing, so I’m hopeful that my first WordCamp will be interesting and full of new ideas.

However, I’m just about to leave the house this morning and I’m already having withdrawals. The weather is beautiful here. Everything is starting to grow and really take off. Spring is almost here. It’s an exciting time around the homestead. As much as I want to go learn some new things about WordPress, I’m really going to miss working on our property.

Of course the problem really isn’t WordCamp – it’s the day job. If I didn’t have that, I’d be working on the property on Monday. But instead I have to go to work. Don’t get me wrong – I like my day job. I get to work on a lot of really cool projects. As day jobs go, it’s a great one. But I would give it up in a heartbeat to spend all of my time on our property and permaculture in general.

That’s because permaculture is my passion. When I can’t work on it, I have withdrawals. Like today. It’s ok because I also like writing about permaculture, and I need the blog to share that. So I can take a few days off to work on something else. But you can bet I’ll be right back here planting things and working on the property as soon as I can, because permaculture is my real passion.

Spend more time doing what you care about, and less on things that you don’t. Find your passion, whatever it is, and do it every chance you get.
