Finding Your Passion is Utter Nonsense

Finding your passion is bullshit.

Hear me out for a minute:

I’m not saying that you can’t or shouldn’t be enthusiastic about something…but don’t let it overcome your life.

Spending hours and hours trying to find your passion, you’ll find that you missed out on doing a ton of things. DO THINGS first, the passion will come, and if it doesn’t, don’t sweat it.

Enjoy this little story:

In one of my earlier jobs, there was a guy that sat in the cubicle next to me. I can’t remember his name, but for the sake of the story we’ll call him Jim.

Jim was absolutely relentless with his work.
He came in.
He made his calls like a champ.
He never moaned and complained.
He put in the work and that’s it.
Now, 15 years later, he’s the president of the company.

The point of this story is that if you can identify minor goals to achieve along the way during your career it will go a LONG way and lead you to much greater places than if you get stuck trying to find “the one thing” you were meant for. Not everything has to be fueled by passion.
