Are you this passionate about what you do?

August 20, 2007

I have a friend that I communicate with via email about 2-3 times a month.  I noticed that a couple of the emails that he had sent me were at 5 O’Clock in the morning.  So I asked him what his work schedule was like.  Here was his response:

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Yeah, you’ve struck on a secret….  Ssshhhhhh!

I tend to take 10am-ish to 1pm-ish off…so, if you were to look at the “most days” schedule, it’d look like:

Up 4:30
Work till 5:30/6am
Workout till 8am
Work till 10am
Read, write, brainstorm, watch videos, etc through lunchtime…
Back at the computer/desk till about 5ish
Do one more work session after dinner.

I’ve tracked it for the past few months…it’s working. I get 1.5 – 3 hours of workouts in a day, and 5-9 hours of “work” in a day. So far, so good!

I will admit that I’m not this passionate about what I do yet (I’m getting closer and closer), but what would your life be like if you were?  How many more people could you help?  How many more grants could you write?  How many souls could you save as a pastor?
