Are you doing what you love? What are you passionate about? Do you know?
Most often when I ask people what they love to do, they tell me, “closing the deal,” or “helping someone,” or “working in an Excel spreadsheet.”
And when I ask, “What are you passionate about,” “What do you love so much that you would do it for free,” their answers are different. Their answers are, “cleaning the rivers,” or “cutting a CD with my band,” or “starting an urban vegetable garden.”
Passion is a result, it is the feeling you get when you are engaged in doing something you love. So why are the answers different? I believe the answers are different because we have lost sight of the fact that we can do what we love, and make a living. We can feel passion for our work, and make a living.
