Thought for the Day




I'm reading this great new book, Talent is Never Enough...and I just came across a killer quote:

"Some people say that they feel burned out. The truth is that they probably never were on fire in the first place."

This is so true! And I think there is a big difference between feeling overwhelmed (which we all do from time to time) and feeling burned out. Realizing what sets us on fire and going for it is such an awesome feeling. And letting go of all that other stuff feels pretty great too!
