The Importance of Setting Time Aside for Passion

When was the last time you put passion on your schedule, or to-do list?


Just minutes ago I was sitting staring at my Mac, wondering what to write? I was tired. It’s 8pm and I have some deadlines for today. Or rather: I need to start working almost full-time on two film scripts tomorrow, so I have to finish some things today. In short, I felt deflated. I was also worried, because I have to finish said scripts to raise funds for the movies. There's nothing to kill inspiration like fear.

Then I heard from my friend who I work with in Hangberg, where the films are set. One of the movies is loosely based on a boy I know who lives there. Well, its’ a fictional story, but the character is based on him. And I’ve been chasing my friend to get hold of him for over a week. Finally, they managed to meet up and they left me voicemails. Hearing their voices made me so happy I smiled like a lunatic.

I’m passionate about working with the kids and youth in Hangberg. It makes me come alive. It brings a smile to my face. And I love directing. The thought that I will soon be making a movie with them…

After hearing my friends voices that side, I felt like a million dollars and had inspiration shooting out of my ears. I’m still a bit tired, but it’s nothing compared to how deflated I felt moments earlier.

Passion makes us come alive.

This made me wonder: how often do you take time to do what makes you come alive? I know I often postpone doing what I love most as I’m “busy.” I’m busy doing things that will pay my bills. But I also often end up so deflated I have no energy at all. Had I only taken the time to do what I love, I’d have much more energy and work much faster doing the things I simply have to do to stay alive.

And when I feel like I can’t take another hour of staring at my Mac, I read a book, or watch a movie, instead of scheduling time in to do something that truly makes me feel alive. Sure, we all need some downtime, but I know that reading a book won’t take me any closer to living my dreams. It’s more like a numbing agent that takes the edge off having to stare at a computer screen all day long.

What I’m trying to say is that scheduling in time to do what you love is likely to make you work faster, as you know you need to finish your work in order to do it. And when you do what you love, you get energy. This will carry you through the next day’s to-do list. It’s much better than dragging your feet through the day and eventually collapsing on the couch to watch a movie.

So what is it you love and that you need to be doing more of? What is that make you feel alive? When can you next do that?
