Of enthusiasm and the Weekly Wrapup

I've been taught to keep my enthusiasm to myself. I have learned to feel ashamed of my emotional responses. Being excited and loving something is especially bad. Somehow wrong.

Enthusiasm cannot be faked very well. It shows if your heart isn't in it. You'll show off as pretender.

Most often enthusiasm is what gets people on board of (new) things. Ability to present your ideas enthusiastically will take you a long way.

Last week on tasselflower blog (eg. Weekly Wrapup)

Suomeksi (In Finnish): 

Minut on opetettu pitämään innostukseni ihan omana tietonani. Innostus ja jostakin asiasta pitäminen ovat erityisen paha juttu. Jotenkin väärin. Innostusta ei ole kovin helppo feikata. Jos et oikeasti ole innostunut, vaikutat teeskentelijältä. Innostus on usein se, joka saa porukan mukaan (uusiin) asioihin. Kyky esittää asiasi innostuneesti vie pitkälle. Yllä myös viime viikon tapahtumat tasselflower blogissa.
