    The Five Keys to Passion
    by Patricia Boverie and Michael Kroth

    Key #1 -- The Discovering Process

    Passionate people have discovered work that excites them.

    Key #2 -- The Designing Process

    Passionate people find ways to make their lives exciting, meaningful, and special.

    Key #3 -- Risking

    Risk is an important part of living passionately.

    Key #4 -- Learning

    Passionate people are always learning, reinventing themselves, and exploring new things.

    Key #5 -- Building Self-Efficacy

    The belief that we have about our ability to do something.

    Last weekend, I delivered a workshop -- "Empowering Yourself" -- to a wonderful group of Simmons Alumnae in Boston. One exercise we did was creating a vision of our work in the future. You could hear the passion as people shared their visions. This week look at your vision of your work. Can you feel the passion?


    Warm Welcome to the Simmons Club of Boston Program Attendees

    A warm welcome to our new Coaching Tip of the Week subscribers who I met at Simmons College on Saturday morning during my program "Empowering Yourself." I enjoyed sharing my tools for gaining control of your life and participating in the new openings, ideas and visions that people experienced.

    Pounce on a Project for February

    Last month a number of people got a jump on their taxes. What project would you like to get on top of and accomplish?

    Join Coach Andrea on Thursday, February 17, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Eastern. We will join as a group by phone and declare what you want to accomplish: planning your next marketing piece, backing up your computer before you buy a new one, finishing your taxes, making those cold calls, organizing your office, simplifying your filing system, or cleaning under your bed.

    During the morning, the group will gather by phone a few times to check progress and get any support needed to finish with a bang. At noon, the group will celebrate their accomplishments. Who says projects have to be boring and tedious? Bring your lightness and fun and join us for the energization.

    To sign up or learn more, call or e-mail Andrea by noon on February 16th. Feel free to share this with friends and co-workers, the more the merrier. (Cost of the program is only the cost of long distance phone calls.)
