Following Your Heart

 "Stress isn't working 15 hours at a job you like; stress is working 15 minutes in a job you dislike." ~ Kathleen Lane

When asked why we do what we do as wildland firefighters, many say, "I love what I do." Passion is an important driving force of success. If you don't love what you do, your heart won't be shown in your actions. Take a moment to watch Richard St. John's TED Ed video "The Power of Passion."

Video Takeaways:
  • Successful people love what they do.
  • Passions can be for professions, people, products, or fields of work. 
  • Limit the stuff you don't like to no more than 20% of what you do.
  • Passion can be mistaken for ambition.
  • Passion can turn underachievers into superachievers.
  • Explore many paths to find your passion.
  • Do what you do for love, not money.
