Larry Smith: Why you will fail to have a great career
The talk would have been much better if he did not inextricably link passion and career. Pursuing your passion doesn't mean making it your job. Secondly, the fact that he says there are no good careers, only great ones and soul-destroying ones is meant to be self-evident, but I think the evidence points against this. Many people (myself included) love their jobs, but it isn't their passion.. I appreciate the sentiment he tries to convey, but he is very wrong about being passionate and how to pursue a passionate life.
