Are You Truly Passionate About the Things That Matter Most?

What our Newborn Son Taught Me About REAL Passion

There is a pervasive and misleading myth in today’s culture about what passion truly is. This myth says that passion means doing what you love and loving every part of what you do. Our newborn son recently showed me just how wrong this myth is.

Are You Truly Passionate About the Things That Matter Most?

Do What You Love…Then What?

There is a famous quote attributed to everyone from Marc Antony to Confucius to Harvey MacKay. It says:

Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.

In other words, follow your passion and the “work” will seem easy.

This myth says that if you can only find something you are truly passionate about, you will never know pain, hard work, or toil a day in your life. This myth could not possibly be more wrong.

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” ~Steve Jobs
