Whether you follow football or not it is hard to escape the hype of the Super Bowl. I happen to love it. Who’s the best quarterback, the best rookie, the best commercial, the best Super Bowl party food, the best over the top fan attire….I love it all. It expresses a passion. And whether it is a hobby, an ethnic food, team logo wear or the work you do, passion adds to the enjoyment of life and helps us to be the best we can be. It helps us connect with others that have similar interests.
High school students, if you don’t know what your passion is, explore more and find it! Colleges and universities want to know what moves you and why their institution will be a good fit for you.
College students, whether you are applying for an internship or getting ready to graduate and applying for that first “just out of college” job, that potential employer wants to know that you have passion too. Happy employees make for more productive employees. Demonstrate your passion for the company you are looking to embrace.
Even you guys in the workforce, are you demonstrating a passion for your work? If not, why not? Sometimes we still enjoy our work but the balance of life brings us to a place that seems to have diminished that passion. What do you need to do to rekindle it?
Life is a balance. Being the best we can be includes enjoying the work we do, balancing it with spending time with family, friends or activities we enjoy and paying attention to the passions that make us better people. Are you the best you can be?
