There has been a lot written recently about the “do what you love” and “follow your passion” advice being wrong. One author went so far as to make the case Steve Jobs didn’t subscribe to this either, tracking his career progression as a barefoot hippie in college through his meteoric rise at Apple.
For me, it’s never been about whether or not to follow your passion. Rather, it’s about understanding true career success and satisfaction (doing something you care about and being rewarded richly for it), actually comes from the ability to intersect passion with problem solving.
In the video below, I explain why the secret to true career success lies in a strategy that contains both.
Watch the video and then ask yourself, “What problem do I passionately care about solving?” Answer that and I GUARANTEE you’ll start to find your true calling.
