Why ‘follow your passion’ is
bad AMAZING advice!
Today I read a feature on CNN Opinion on why following your passion is bad advice. The article was written by Cal Newport. Cal talks about research that shows, that it is not important for a person to be happy with the job they have to do a good job!
This maybe true in some cases, but just imagine a work place where employes love what they do, and they can’t wait to get to work! They don’t settle on doing a “good,” job, they do an extraordinary job EVERYDAY!
I have worked at places where my boss has told me, “you’re the best we have ever had.” But this did not make me pumped up or inspired to do better, because my passion was just not there. We are taught at a very young age that WORK is WORK and you WORK so you can do your HOBBIES on the side. Why would anyone want to live that way. I do not want to spend the majority of my time doing something I have no passion for, just to get a paycheck so I can do my hobbies on the weekends.
Newport also says, that most people have no idea what their passion is. I disagree with that. I don’t know anyone who has no passions, or doesn’t know what they love to do. I’m here to help people have the mind set, the plan, and the heart to go after those passions and make those hobbies, the career you can be extraordinary at, and live the happy life we all deserve!
