YOUR WORK. YOUR ART.Enjoy your work!
How much of yourself do you bring to your work?
For many people, work and passion do not go hand in hand. Work is ‘a necessary part of life’, and only in your free time you do the things that really make you happy…
It’s exactly this separation between work and passion, that leads to a lackluster attitude towards your work. Because how can you be expected to enjoy it, if you switch off both yourself and your passions duringworking hours?
Perhaps this is just something that you are used to. Many of us never learned to make choices based on passions and talents. Schools hardly payed attention to this. And the emphasis in our society is placed much more on making ‘responsible’ choices and stability, rather than on discovering your dreams and talents. Therefore, perhaps you never really got to know these, or simply ignored them for practical reasons. Or even worse: you think that you do not have any!
This leads to inner turmoil. You do have passions and talents – and they want to be lived! If you lock them out, it will severely impact the fun, motivation and energy that you get out of your work. This might even lead to a bore-out. Which is a pity, because there are more possibilities than you might think!

When talking about helping people with a bore-out, I am regularly interrupted in the middle of my story. Did I perhaps mean a burn-out? Once again, this proves: the burnout is a hot item, the bore-out is unknown – and possibly even unpopular. Why is this?...
