Work/Love Work Balance
I've seen a lot of stuff written about work life balance, but what about work and love work balance?
Many of us, myself included, are working at day jobs where the work itself simply isn't very inspiring. How do we go about finding ways to contribute?
I'm experimenting right now with getting up an hour earlier on weekdays to do work that I find meaningful, and so far it has helped me feel that I am dedicated to my own purpose above all. But I find own attention wandering sometimes during the day towards the contribution I want to make, and I feel that it's inappropriate, although it's very difficult staying focused on my offical day job.

I also work on something else besides my official job. I like my job also.
It can be difficult to focus in your job, because of course you enjoy much more your project.
What I do is to spend in my own project only 5 to 10 minutes at my job after the lunch. And I try to focus on may tasks the rest of the day. I don't think you get in trouble doing that.
What is your project about???

Quit your uninspiring job and commit to working inspiringly and purposefully. I thought you had already done that! "Balance" between eight hours of uninspiring and not-purposeful vs. the rest of your life is no balance at all. It's an elephant weighing down one side of the teeter-totter and a beautiful Avatar bird wanting to fly off the other into a clear blue sky.
