One of your missions in life should be to discover your inner passion. Whether it is fixing cars, teaching students, practicing law or medicine, solving math problems, building wealth, hitting homeruns or spending time with loved ones - you should know what makes you tick - and then make every effort to do it on a regular basis.
On Monday, Diva texted me early in the day to see if I needed her help to teach class. When I wrote her back, I meant to write, 'no but if you can teach friday's class that would be a huge help.' Instead, 'I wrote if you can teach on Monday's that would be a huge help.' Of course later in the day when she showed up I asked what she was doing here before we both recognized where the confusion was. I told her the wrong day. Mistake on me. But since she was already there and I had a ton of work to catch up on with an inbox of emails to answer, I told her to go ahead and coach the kids at 4pm. She generously took me my offer.
But before I delve into it, let's not overlook the fact that Diva did a fabolous job coaching class as she always does and the kids really enjoy her (especially as a nice break from hearing me everyday). The big mistake was realized later that night before I closed my eyes to catch zzzzz's.
Laying down with my head to the pill unwinding from a long day, something felt off as the feeling you get when you leave your house knowing as if you forgot something. For some reason my day just felt unfilled. It finally dawned on me. I realize what was missing was I didn't teach the 4pm class like I normally do. I know it sounds crazy and difficult to surmise, but you know what I'm talking about if you have the good fortune to do what you love to do each day and find yourself on vacation wondering why you are not having fun.
So on one hand, my day was productive by all measures, but it was NOT completely fueled by passion.
That day, I realized how much I love teaching Steve's Club class and how much purpose it gives me in life.
