Think about projects that energize you.

My #1 secret for figuring our your passion in life? Think about what activities energize you! What projects could you just get lost in for hours on end without even realizing how much time has passed? What do you do that makes the time fly by? What makes you excited and inspired?

I don’t feel like I’m at work - Instead, I’m in my own little world doing something that makes me happy. It’s a great feeling! Think about one project you did recently that you absolutely LOVED being apart of - Don’t limit your answer to professional activities and projects. Consider your hobbies and volunteer activities, too! Then, evaluate why you enjoy doing those tasks so much. Distilling this information down to basic activities and tasks you are passionate about doing can really help you figure out what you’re passionate about in your life and career.
