ADD is something I have been battling with for years. Maybe thats why I have had so many jobs over the years. I always end up wanting more learning and creative stimulation after the job is mastered and it gets into that daily same old thing. Money has not been the answer either. (but it helps 🙂 ) I can think of the two jobs I have had, that have brought me the most joy and they are my five years as a Firefighter and running Grass Shack Events & Media. Both bring constant creative stimulation and putting out fires on a regular basis. (one literally putting out fires) I am finding lately I need to be even more creative and building sets and coming up with themes just isn’t enough. So I have been interested in Blacksmithing, welding and writing.
I also feel like lately I have a new outlet by way of looking into others passions which has been pretty rewarding. I have been feeding off my twitter/facebook/podcast friends. The passion I see from some folks like Chris Brogan, Franklin McMahon, CC Chapman, David Spark, Phil McKinney, Christopher Penn, John Wall, Jeremiah Owyang and Todd Henry all keep me thinking creatively and keeping in tune about whats going on around me.
And the funny think is I have never met these people in person. Well I had dinner with Phil Mckinney and a beer with Franklin McMahon (but I didn’t know it was him and he was right across from me for a few hours)
What is your passion? Is it in your work or an after work type of activity? Is it family? A hobby? Or is it chasing a ball like Alex above can do all day long?
