Your passion shouldn't be your job

If you can't imagine not doing something, it's a passion. It doesn't have to be a moneymaker. 

Make your money some way that will give you the time for what you really love to do.

Work out what you hate doing

List the jobs or tasks that you absolutely loathe. Once you have eliminated these options, your true passion may become more clear.

Ask this question: who do I envy the most due to the work they do? List multiple individuals, then look at the work they do, and try those things. You might find your passion from that list.

According to Oliver Emberton, if you fuse your mediocre skills together, you'll find your passion.

Emberton argues that the most successful people "are a fusion of skills, often not even exceptional skills, but they’ve made their fusion exceptional."

Forget the 'Eureka!' moment

  • Your true passion is not found overnight but is realized through a series of discoveries of small interests.
  • Try asking close friends and family what they think you should be doing with your life. 
  • Experiment with new activities, whether it's a new sport, learning a language, or trying a craft, as much as possible.

Remember what you loved doing as a child

What hobbies did you enjoy doing before life got in the way? Would you enjoy those activities now?

Or take a new perspective: imagine that you are very old. What do you wish you had spent the last 20 to 30 years doing?

Try visualization

Imagine yourself getting up early, jumping out of bed, excited about going to work. You get dressed quickly, full of enthusiasm about your day. You take those first steps out of your bedroom. 

Now work out where you are going and what kind of job follows on from that feeling of anticipation.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
