How to Make the Most Important Thing Your Favorite Thing

How to Make the Most Important Thing Your Favorite Thing

Make a list of the top five most important things you need to do this week. I bet that one or more of those items on the list is not something you truly enjoy.
Sometimes we dread doing the most important things. They might seem daunting because maybe they lack in fun. 
 
It’s important to figure out how to make your most important things your favorite things. For example, my son, Crosby, loved trains when he was younger, so every week I made it a point to take him to the local train museum. Trains may have not been a major topic of interest for me at the time, but seeing my son more happy than ever was amazing. Pretty soon, I loved going to the train museum.
 
I also had a similar experience with my daughter. She loved fashion, so every year I took her the New York Fashion Week events. Am I a lover of fashion? No, but my daughter and I made this into one of our favorite things. 
 
Finding a way to enjoy the important things in life is vital. What are the most important things in your life? Are they also your favorite? If your answer to that question is no, find a way to change that.
