Once in an interview, I was asked that very question, it caught me off guard, but I sat there and thought before I answered.
“I’m passionate about whatever it is that I’m doing because that’s what I’m applying my time to and I try to use my time thoughtfully.”
This statement isn’t some forced attempt at optimism, it’s meant more to try and get you to readjust your perspective. Push yourself a little more and more every single day to try and be present within your daily routine.
Finding importance in even the little things you do on a daily basis helps to make every single day feel a little less meaningless. When you start constantly start diminishing the importance of your small everyday achievements it gets easier and easier to fall into an unproductive pit of despair.
