Having passion in your work is trainable. Being deeply passionate and driven is not. How does one pursue a deep desire to be doing more?
I am inspired by every person that contributes to TED. I would wager a guess that most of these people are deeply passionate about what they do. One could even say that they are living the dream - they are doing exactly drives them every day.
How can more of us achieve that - how does one get there?
- Are most of us not practical when we choose to become passionate about a career path or calling?
- Do some of us need to study longer to create the opportunity to become passionate about our career?
- How can we still follow our dreams in 2011, 2012 and beyond?
- Is the concept of following your dreams and doing more something of the past?
I consider myself lucky, I love what I do. I would like to be doing more in my community and with giving back. I feel I make contribution, but I could be doing more. How can I help others find passion in what they do and with where they are going?
