The snow fort and the sidewalk

When it snows, do kids prefer to build a snow fort or shovel the sidewalk?

What’s the difference?

One of the differences is enthusiasm. Enthusiasm provides energy, while lack of it sucks energy out.

If you’re having trouble persisting at something that matters to you, or even harder something that doesn’t matter to you, find the kernel of enthusiasm for some aspect of the work. Or some kernel of enthusiasm for the purpose for the work. Everything you do potentially contributes something to someone, even if it just contributes to you having food on the table and a roof over your head. 

It’s not all sidewalk, there’s a snow fort in there somewhere.
