. Take what you believe to be is “your passion” and break it down to your core passion. Ask yourself, “What arerepparttar true feelings or emotions behind my passion.” Usingrepparttar 140765 two examples from above, you may like to paint; however how do you feel when someone else admires or purchases your work?

A Better To-Do List

Prioritise your list. You can putrepparttar more important things atrepparttar 140724 top, or put a mark next to them. Then start doingrepparttar 140725 important things first every day.
