In “my” industry people speaking a lot of doing things “with passion or not at all.” I’m wonder, are we aware of what passion meant?
The word itself means both in Greek and Latin “to suffer”, which fits very well with the some of the crazy work ethics out there.
I for myself try to stay with the “good feelings” that arose with from the Stoic and might add to them: Engagement instead of passion. I’ll always do my best, but I will not suffer. Or at least, I try not to.
Just a late night thought.
