“The world belongs to the energetic.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
It’s easy to blame our failure to meet our goals or to live our dream lives on a lack of energy, and we don’t always stop to think about the quality of energy in our lives. Yet we can choose to create and manage our own energy flow.
Think of an instance when you’ve been so involved in an activity that you’ve lost track of time, and then identity the passions and energies you were feeding. Who was there with you? What were you doing? What will you do to make time for moments like that one more often?

I’ve always loved travelling with hubs, exploring new places, trying out the local cuisine, and being able to just live in the moment, not worrying about anything. We could walk for hours, taking a different turn, trying out a new cafe we thought was interesting.
It is something about being in a new place that excited me. I love the sensation of having a new experience, getting into things I’ve never done before, seeing things I’ve never seen. I’m not talking of the daredevil things, or some great buildings or canyons. For me, it was simple things like finding a new corner street with lots of interesting cafes, a park I’ve never been to, or a new Zara store.
As for work, I love the feeling I get when starting a new project. With the writing projects, it means all those possible plots to explore, new characters traits, new villains. With the design projects, it means all those new color, new theme, and new ways of doing things.
It’s not easy when you felt stuck in a project that takes too long. I procrastinated. It definitely made it worse. I think it’s time for me to go back to the feeling I had when starting it, remind myself why I was so passionate about it. I know the feeling when I did something good would be much more exhilarating than starting a new project. I aim for that.
