Out of Alignment

I think there's some real truth to this: passionate work takes less brain juice. When you're really engaged in work that matches your interests and skills, it isn't draining -- you lose track of time and have energy left over for the rest of your life. Curt bounces off an article about creativity to synthesize this insight. A quote:
"In contrast to that state of flow, I've found that following a career path that is out of alignment with who we really are can cause a steady hum of anxiety and effort, just to maintain the status quo."
