How would you answer someone if they asked you to describe your perfect day at work? Some might cheat the process by choosing not to be at work, but that doesn't really answer the question. Could you identify in positive terms what that would look like? It would mean that you have a clear vision of what you do, how to maximize the portions that matter the most, and a way to minimize the negative aspects that bog you down. It's the ability to recognize that there are certain things that feed our souls and energize us while also seeing the need to balance the task lists that are part of being disciplined. If we are to thrive in our area of calling we have to find the equilibrium of what must be done and what inspires us. That is what keeps positive when the weight of responsibility seems to grow too heavy.
