The question that I am asking myself this week is: how do I manage my passion? I believe that living life with passion and purpose is vital to living well. Yet, I also know that passion unchecked is dangerous.
As a Rabbi, I am passionate about Judaism, living decently and finding goodness in the world. As an employer, I am passionate about fulfilling my mission and the people working for me working hard and being productive. And I find myself being calked intimidating, hard, angry, etc. Rather than blame others and say I am being misunderstood, I have to look at myself and change me.
My commitment is to continue to be passionate and productive. I need help! Please let me know your ideas and experience on how to stay passionate and not be dismissed as a raving lunatic. Thanks, I look forward to trying your suggestions out.
