The feeling that we have endless time to complete our work has an insidious and debilitating effect on our minds. Our attention and thoughts become diffused. Our lack of intensity makes it hard for the brain to jolt into a higher gear.
BLACK's journey highlights the extremely important role of passion in fueling the deliberate practice necessary to gain the valuable expertise necessary to reach higher and higher heights of personal creative expression.
A passion doesn't just plug you into a dependable source of rhapsodic moments each week, it also provides the best kind of happiness: gratification, a lasting sense of fulfillment that the instant mood upgrades can't.
As an employee, you can be fulfilling your own objectives within such an organization -- not just financially but also your personal ethos and values -- the natural drive to make the most of your life.
