Life gives you everything. You have tasks, an industry, a company, people, roles you play, and outcomes you're striving for. You pick and choose what you'll react to. Grab a piece of paper and list out all those aspects of your job. Find the ones that appeal to you and reactivate your passion by paying attention to what lights your fire, while ignoring the parts of the job that just don't do it for you.

Is It Time to Change Jobs?

If there's no aspect of your job that excites you, it may be time to consider a major change. Since visiting San Diego, I've always viewed the surfer beach-bum lifestyle with envy. Or maybe you can become an entrepreneur. Use your interests to find out a bit about how you can build your empire, make a difference, and live your passion.
