Balancing Excitement with Purpose

Excitement without purpose is merely hype

We see that purpose with excitement grows mundane and dull. And clearly hype is the adversary of all that is mundane and dull. The strength of each is the existence of the other. And not merely the existence, but the proportional tendency toward balance that each extends toward the other.

Finding true purpose is to find excitement about a purpose and in so doing create from the mundane purpose for being excited.
