Find a way to care

Find a way to care about it and you’ll find a way to get it done. Make the task meaningful enough and you’re sure to make it happen.

Don’t waste your time and drain your energy doing things you don’t want to do. Put your effort into connecting what you must do to the passions that are yours.

All your life you’ve been happy to do the things you truly want to do. So instead of laboring against your desires, make the connection between those desires and whatever you’re working on.

The tasks you enjoy and find meaningful are the tasks at which you excel. Whatever you’re doing, remind yourself why it matters and you’ll find yourself doing it with excellence.

Instead of complaining that you don’t care, frame the task in such a way that you do care. Instead of assuming that your work is meaningless, be the one to give authentic meaning to it.

Make the choice to enjoy and find fulfillment in everything you do. Not only will you feel great, you’ll do great too.
