Finding Your Passion

Find Your Passion and Enjoy Your Job

Not being able to recognize your passion can be a problem for those stuck in jobs that they don’t enjoy. It’s all too easy to fall into a routine that leaves you bored or unfulfilled. You want to make the switch, but you’re not sure what to do next.

Finding your passion is easier than you think. By answering these questions honestly, you can work out what to do with the rest of your life:

  • What subject could you read five hundred books on without getting bored?
  • What could you do for five years straight without getting paid?
  • What would you spend your time doing if you had the financial freedom to do anything?

How to Discover Your Passion

You don’t have to be great at something to be passionate about it. If you can’t imagine not doing something, it’s a passion. You can become laser-focused on your goals by making a list of the things you don’t want, and then writing the opposite. You can determine your passion in the same way.

  1. Start by writing down what you don’t like doing.
  2. List the jobs or tasks that you loathe.
  3. Once you have eliminated these options, your real passion may become more evident.
  4. Create a list of the people you are jealous of by asking the question: “Who do I envy the most because of the work they do?”
  5. List several individuals, then look at the work they do and circle the jobs you would like.
  6. Eliminate anything on your “jealous” list that is also on the list of things you don’t like doing.
  7. The remaining circled information should provide clues about what can trigger your passion.

Combine Skills to Discover Your Passion

Most people have lots of things they are “okay” at doing. According to Oliver Emberton, founder of software start-up Silktide, if you combine your mediocre skills, you’ll find your passion. “Say you’re an average artist, with a decent sense of humor,” he explains. “You won’t have much hope with an art degree, and you can’t study ‘humor’ as a subject. However, you could be an excellent cartoonist.”

Successful People Are Passionate About Their Work

Emberton argues that the most successful people, the ones who are most passionate about their work, are seldom defined by a single skill. “They have a fusion of skills, often not even exceptional skills, but they’ve made their fusion exceptional,” he says.

When you consider Steve Jobs, you see that he was not the world’s greatest engineer, salesperson, designer, or businessman. He was uniquely good enough at all of these things and wove them together into something far more significant.

Your passions can be endless or dynamic. It is crucial to discover at least one thing you are passionate about in this world and use it to transform your entire life.
