I think about my work often and whether it will pay off in the long run. Most of my work involves leading, teaching, coaching and running a company of like-minded creators to help people connect through their stories, not forgetting being a husband and father. That is a lot to handle in a day.
While I am busy keeping myself busy, I do try to make it a point to pen my ideas down on paper, in hopes that I would have written enough content to publish my next book. To be honest, I sometimes feel consumed and exhausted at the end of it all, with all the work combined.
The only way for me to keep sane is to take a step back in life and to remind myself that hard work is always there for a reason - that is to create value for others. It gets more comfortable for me as I make this shift in mindset.
I merely see simplicity in myself and the meaningful work I am pursuing at hand. Nothing else. At the end of the day, what I am working on is my cause and the cause is, in itself, who I honestly am.
