Thanksgiving was this week so I’ve been hearing all sorts of versions of the “original” Thanksgiving feast – you know, the one in Plymouth in 1621. No one on earth was ever thankful or had a feast before that one… right?

I think I found another good test to tell if something is more than an interest and possibly a passion. Two different people in the last couple of weeks had similar questions, and when I heard each of them… I got excited!

There is a key to making a living by pursuing your passion. It’s a secret that has amazing and wondrous power. But it kind of sucks.

On Saturday I accompanied my older son to a preview event at the nearby University of North Texas. It’s one of the options he’s considering so he wanted to learn about the programs they offer. He filtered all the information through the high school senior’s lens, the one that wonders if there’s an easier degree or a more enjoyable campus. He was interested but not impressed. I heard everything as a person who loves personal development and creative career opportunities so I was excited.

This weekend my parents joined my sons and me for an out of town trip. My older son had soccer games Saturday and Sunday for a Premier League featuring interstate competition for the top teams in each state association. The good news was I got to leave behind that danged clutter that I’ve committed to face little by little each day. The strange news is the weekend was so much about winning and losing, and why it ever matters, that it shook up my thinking about growing a small business.
