I want to do all the work I must do, but I want to do it authentically and passionately. I want to find sense in all my work. I will try it for these following weeks. I think that finding passion in my work will make it actually more enjoyable!

It really helps your to visualize how you’ll wake up next morning. Once you go to bed and start getting sleepy, make an effort and open your eyes widely, get up and say to yourself “this is what I’m doing tomorrow morning”. It worked for me some weeks ago. I’m trying it again, and I’ll tell you how it worked.
Going to sleep and waking up at the same time every day also really helps.
I want to make an effort. Making an effort gives me freedom.
It is difficult to know what you want, but once you have an idea about what you want you should be able to do those things you want, and not those things that you don’t want. However, one of the most common problems is what Aristotle once called “Akrasia”, or weakness of will: when we end up doing something we don’t really want.
For instance, let’s suppouse that I realize that what I authentically like is to see people and help them with anything they need. I like to watch football at TV, however, I know that I don’t like it as much as helping other people.
In spite of this, what I end up doing every time is watching TV and not helping other people.
Because doing what I authentically want requires an Effort. It is easier to stay at our comfrot-zone, doing what we’ve always done. But that is not what fulfills us, so we live with little passion and enthusiasm.
When we make an effort we can really start doing what we authentically want.
That’s why I’ll start making an effort (or at least I’ll start making an effort to make an effort).
