Jonathan Mead has a very interesting post over at PickTheBrain about Why Do We Avoid Doing What We Love?.

If we know what makes us feel alive, why do we resist it? Why do we avoid doing what we love to do?

There are some important lessons in here:

Failure is fundamental to the creative process. If you don’t fail, you’ll never improve.

Respect the fact that mastering any skill takes time. Instead of thinking about all the things that aren’t right, think about what you can do now to improve.

There is also a part about when we have turned our passion into work and what we can do to re-ignite our passion.

Anytime you feel that you must do something, you lose inspiration. You lose your sense of excitement.

I am following my passion and have started working as a professional coach. Another passion is sharing and gaining knowledge, a reason for my blogs.
