When I find something that I feel passionate about, I throw myself into it. That can lead others to think of me as a workaholic or being over committed at times, but anything less than my best effort feels like a let down. I can accept failure, but I can't accept failing because I didn't put the effort in.
I enjoy playing baseball, softball, or even the occasional wiffleball game. However, work and other obligations tend to keep me from participating as often as I would prefer.
