Has it been a while since you felt the power of words within you? Is it as if you've lost the once so joyful certainty that you do have ideas worth sharing?
Let me ask you: what do you do when (or if?) that happens?
Reading great things still makes you tick! Oh yeah, you get carried away with plans, just like the good old times: "Wow, this is the answer to the project..
Until then, out of the blue, there is yet another new message stating that everything you built your days on will be twisted just the opposite, you're no longer the one in charge or who is expected to act in matters like this. - Is that how the earthquake hits you??!
Looking back it often seems there's more to it.
Perhaps your workload has exceeded reasonable boundaries. Or maybe the support you once used to have, has now been removed, more or less totally. Or have your responsibilities and empowerment been whirling around, growing the amount of mixed signals big enough to carry a train away?
If that's the case, is it really any wonder if you no longer feel like it?
Bad news is, though, that the biggest loser is not the individual who has lost the passion. It's his employer. Think about it. If you lose the one who effects the spirit the most, or the one who always used to get also the slow adapters to buy the new ideas, let alone the team that gets everybody together to bring out their best, especially at the hard times.. I mean, without them, what do you have left?
The big question is, how do you find the way out? Let's hear it!
