When you’re passionate about something, it is very easy to let passion get the better of you and lose the grander perspective on things.
That’s the trouble with passion; it has a capacity to leave you blind-sighted during the very times when you need perspective the most. You focus too much on the here and now rather on what could come next.
But on the other hand passion is also a huge source of energy.
Not only when things go well, and you feel like you can just keep on going because you’re on a quest.
But also when things are falling off the rails, because that’s when you use the energy of your passion to grind your teeth, keep on going and figure out what to do next.
But it still takes an ability to keep your eyes and – most especially – your mind open to the perspective.
