My work brain has sprung into action. A sign that this has occurred is that I spend time at home doing work. I’ve been working really hard not to bring my work home BUT when I get excited about something I call it “engaging in my professional passion” as opposed to just “work”.
It isn’t as if my brain hasn’t been working but she’s been in maintenance mode as opposed to creative mode. Time to flip the switch.
Coincidentally, my brain has sprung right before Spring Break. While the kiddies are away the advisor will play.
Play, as in finishing up a long list of projects that I vowed to have completed prior to the end of spring 2012. Reviewing my notes from the AFA Annual Meeting helped me remember all of the freshness inspired by chatting with colleagues and attending educational sessions. I’ve acted on a couple of things and not others and I need to remedy that situation.
Play, as in attacking my grown-up to-do list which has things like “taxes” on it, study for the GRE, and purchasing a new vacuum.
Play, as in listening to Spotify and desk dancing while clacking away furiously on my keyboard. Of course, there will be regular Pinterest, Bloglovin’, and Facebook breaks just to keep the mind refreshed.
Time to put in work.
That is all.
Oh, and here’s a word from Simon Sinek.
“Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion.”—WORD!
