"Follow your passions" is bad advice

Few people have a passion that neatly translates into a career, and following one's passions often leads to misguided career moves. Rather, your satisfaction at work has more to do with your experience with that work rather than the type of work.

To have intrinsic motivation at work, you need:

  1. Autonomy - feeling like you have control over your time
  2. Competence – the feeling that you’re good at your work
  3. Relatedness – connecting with other people in the process

Spend more time alone

This is commonly viewed as a negative experience but actually has lots of benefits, like:

  • Benefiting social relationships
  • Improving creativity and confidence
  • Making you better at regulating emotions

When you feel stressed out, try taking some time for yourself to recharge and reflect.

These days, traditional fields are not necessarily a ticket to job security.

You can be passionate about many things and still be successful - you find a way to fit all of your interests into your life or even tie them together into one career.
