“One man has enthusiasm for 30 minutes, another has it for 30 days, but is the man who has it for 30 years who makes a success of his life.”

 ~Edward B. Butler

We are bombarded daily by ‘options’:  How to spend our time, money, effort. Who to associate with personally and professionally.  It is easy to get distracted by the latest thing, develop enthusiasm for it/them, and focus our energies and passion on this newest distraction.  But how much meaning does this new infatuation truly hold?  How long does the enthusiasm last?  I submit that those things & people that hold our passion for the long term have the most meaning and lead to true and deep satisfaction and happiness.  So take the time to reflect on what truly holds your interest and ensure that the ‘new’ distractions are in harmony with your long term passions.  Those things are fun to get enthusiastic about for 30 minutes!
