Redefining Passion

21 December 2013

This article titled "Redefining Passion, Avoiding the Fate of the 64%" really clicked with me.

Here are some excerpts that stood out:

You don’t inherently know what you’re passionate about.

Passion is acquired through experience and excitement. It’s derived from turning something you love to do into something you’re skilled at doing. You don’t just discover passion and then match a job to it;
it’s something that needs to be grown and cultivated over time.
The problem is that we seek immediacy.

We want to be good at what we love NOW. 
Replace decisiveness with curiosity. View every job not as an irreparable decision, but as an opportunity to learn more about yourself and a stepping stone towards identifying your true passions.
