This year I was determined to move away from Inteco. I felt that I had sacrificed enough blood and sweat and it was time to reclaim my life. Prior to this declaration I used to eat, breath and live Inteco. Where one stopped the other began. I was tired of it. I felt I had no identity. Especially after I went through a mid life crisis early this year. I wondered who I was without Inteco. The answer was simple I was no one.
Thus, I started my journey of separation. I was not going to work for Inteco anytime before 8 and passed 5. In my to do list I had activities such as drawing and reading a novel to balance my life out. It was all good working out well. Until I got used to it.
Without realizing I started treating it like a job. From the above paragraph it was a job. I had demoted it down to an activity on my to do list. There has been progress this year do not get me wrong. This has been the most consistent year I have been involved with inteco. There have been no breaks in the middle of the year. I have tried to incorporate it to my daily life. But, I was just managing it. I started getting passionate about other things, which isn’t a bad thing. It was as if instead of adding passion to my new projects I took away my passion from Inteco.
The spark has been ignited again. I do not mind been one and the same as my organisation. I am actually proud to be associated with it and I want the world to know about it. Not to feed my ego but, because I believe it is a conduit to change our culture on how sexual reproductive training is addressed in the country. It is a cause I am passionate championing for and I will achieve that through my business.
I have come to terms that there is really no separation with a passion project.
