Key ingredient for success – passion

Doobie the Rescued RottweilerToday, I’m a man on a mission. Several of my closer friends in the recruiting community know that I am currently working on a project that is very important to me… I’m very passionate about this particular topic. In fact, I’m close to being obsessed.

The subject, which will be revealed fully as the week progresses, is one of import to many people and a much wider audience than my usual readers. It is a public service campaign for the benefit of dogs and dog owners. I am about to fully launch a site that will help owners choose between moral and ethical breeders and those who mistreat both animals and their customers. I’ve been busy for about 2 days putting the site together and will be outlining my story and the reason for the site as time goes along. What I would like to ask of my audience is to stay tuned, read the blog articles as they appear, visit the website [which will be listed as soon as all the pages are done – probably later today], link to the new site and this article, and pass the links along to anyone and everyone you know that cares about dogs.

What does this have to do with success and passion? Good question. I hope that you will see over the next few weeks that passion helps drive the success of your projects. Without passion, your work will be dull and uninspired. But with it, you work won’t seem like work. With passion, you can accomplish seemingly impossible goals. In the coming weeks, I’m going to attack this campaign with all the passion that I can muster. I’ll be reporting the results to you here, on a regular basis.

  1. It’s fascinating how a passion for your work makes time move faster, impossible tasks seem at least plausible and un-helpful people fade from view.
    I was just pondering this yesterday, as I sat stitching together a teddy bear out of a 60-year old wedding dress and a fur stole (I also make Treasured Memory Bears out of precious clothing). One hour of handwork turned into three, and soon I was knee-deep in satin and fur scraps; I loved every minute of it.
    Of course, I’m still working toward the day that I can hire more staff (especially someone to do all the annoying paperwork) but while I toil away I remember that I could be sitting in an office staring out the window, with nothing but thoughts of 5 o’clock in my head.
    Not a way to live. I’m glad I found my true calling.
