Your heart is like a machine, tirelessly pumping throughout your life to power your body.
In the course of an average lifetime, your heart is likely to beat more than two and a half billion times, without ever pausing to rest.
Your heart beats about 100K times in one day. Hard to imagine what it does? A kitchen faucet would need to be turned on all the way for at least 45 years to equal the amount of blood pumped by the heart in an average lifetime.
What do you do with that energy?
The ultimate passion for creation and exploring one’s capabilities are some of the most important drivers for people who truly enjoy their professional challenges and believe in what they do. People may show up for work, but are they engaged and productive?
Our newest Mission with Volvo revolves around the idea of finding satisfaction in life. With most of our days spent at a workplace, it is extremely important to either derive pleasure from what you do or being able to find time to pursue one’s passion and hobbies.
People are motivated when they feel engaged and their commitment gives them a sense of ownership and pride of being a part of a healthy organization.
HR professionals who are daily challenged with finding ways to keep their employees and work organization upbeat and making sure that the overall mood is fulfilling, often underline the importance of a healthy work-life balance and the need to give people room to explore their hobbies and interests after hours.
The power output of the heart ranger from 1-5 watts, while the quadriceps can produce 100 watts for a few minutes, an output of one watt for 80 years is equal to 2,5 gigajoules. What do you make with that energy? What is your ultimate passion? When was the last time you felt your heart beat faster because you achieved what you wanted or dreamt about for some time?
..the Nature? for all its wonders: majestic rocks, bluest skies, invite flower creations that turn into gardens and jungle with all its force and danger? is it the sound of an ocean that covers the underwater noise of sea predators and the beauty of underwater gardens you visit while diving?
…the People? for all the people who turned moments in memories, who share a tear and a laugh when you need them close for better and worse moments of your life. Maybe it is a great piece of advice you got from them that made you change a decision to get you where you are?
…your Passion? that one thing that is always on your mind? maybe you are a natural born racer who had or hasn’t had the possibility to turn a car racing track into a self-discovery race because in that one moment when things are blurred behind your side windows everything else is suddenly clear in your head?
What do you create? Who do you care about the most? What is the biggest goal? What makes you feel proud? What is your next goal? Destination? Ambition to fulfill?
