That which each can do best, none but his Maker can teach him. Where is the master who could have taught Shakespeare? Where is the master who could have instructed Franklin, or Washington, or Bacon, or Newton? . . . Shakespeare will never be made by the study of Shakespeare. Do that which is assigned you, and you cannot hope too much or dare too much. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Identify one of your biggest challenges at the moment (ie I don’t feel passionate about my work) and turn it into a question (ie How can I do work I’m passionate about?) Write it on a post-it and put it up on your bathroom mirror or the back of your front door. After 48-hours, journal what answers came up for you and be sure to evaluate them.
Bonus: tweet or blog a photo of your post-it.

One of my challenges is to identify my passion. I am a wife, mom, grandmother and I love being those things. I read Poke the Box and wonder if there is something I can do that will positively affect those outside my immediate family. I am currently rekindling my interest in sewing and using fiber to inspire my creative side. My post-it will read: Let loose your creativity!
