How should one find his/her passion?
Hello TED members,
I have a question in mind. How to filter my interests to find my passion?
As a child, I have always been interested in almost everything. I am good at a lot of activities and love doing all of them. I have many interests, i am great at all of them, and am passionate about all. It bothers me a lot because then i can't really choose a profession which i would like for certain.
To start with, i love playing guitar. I can literally play guitar all day, i love writing and reading novels, i love physics and maths, i love basketball, i love delivering speeches, i love technology and computer science, i love meeting new people and striking challenging conversations with them (debates), i love economics, i love english and i love tennis and swimming and acting.
If anyone asks me to, i can do any of these things, for a long long time without getting bored...
This is ridiculously annoying cause even after my best efforts, i tend to love many things and can't focus at excellence in one. Its like im a jack of all trades, master of none. This annoys me and i can't choose a profession. I am in grade 10, and i know its too early. But i just like almost everything i start with. I have developed hate for some things and i start to hate things just as easy as i start to love them. Next thing you know, im out there spending my days learning how to play the saxophone. =.=
So please, guide me for i am befuddled.
Thank you for your precious time and would appreciate active participation for i really need guidance.
