“People rarely succeed unless they are having fun in what they are doing.” – Dale Carnegie


Knowing that I am doing what I love and following my passion is #1. Fun comes next. It is the gauge I use to decide how to focus my time and energy. If you’re doing what you love, it should be fun, right?

This doesn’t mean, however, that I ignore the less desirable tasks that are required to make something happen. It simply means I’m looking at the end result. By focusing on the end result and knowing I am going to have a blast working with someone or teaching a class or hosting an event makes all the other little, less enjoyable tasks seem doable.

Are you having fun?
