The "Go big or go home" attitude

Taking small and consistent steps leads to big gains.

People with that “Go Big or Go Home” attitude tend to end up home. They get injured or burn out from doing too much, too fast, too soon.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

You don't find passion
You cultivate it. Expecting to find something that feels perfect right away may lead to the frustration of constant seeking. 

Lower the bar from “perfect” and choose activities that offer these big three traits linked to long-term passion, performance, and life-satisfaction: autonomy, mastery and belonging.

Don’t quit your job too fast

Individuals who pursue their passions as side-gigs and gradually ramp up are much more successful in the long run. 

This is because there’s less pressure, so you can take more risks.

Thomas Jefferson
"Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you."

Passion isn't just about what you love to do, or what is fun, but what you care about. Focussing on what you care about leaves out the 'enjoyment' part and aligns your passion with your values and the impact you want to have in this world.

Passion also wanes over time, and the key to be successful in your passion is to be resilient and perseverant.
